Researchers at Northumbria and Newcastle Universities are keen to learn more about how people working, recreating or otherwise spending time in the Team Valley Trading Estate (TVTE) encounter, engage with and respond to nature – in all its diversity.

During Summer/Autumn 2018 we have engaged with a group of TVTE users, including food vendors, salespeople, lawyers and dog-walkers. During these months, 20 participants have carried out a self-directed photography exercise using a disposable camera. These TVTE users are also in the process of reflecting on some of the images they have captured.

The photos and comments presented here are just a few of those that have been produced. We hope you enjoy them!
