Follow the Light: A year in Epping Forest and Hollow Ponds

Photographs of Epping Forest 

Caroline Jones is a photographer based in Walthamstow who has published a photobook 'Follow the Light: A year in Epping Forest and Hollow Ponds' that documents the changing of the seasons throughout the year. During the pandemic she has explored the ancient woodland and found comfort from the turmoil in the world.

Caroline has kindly offered to share some of her images to support the Epping Forest Festival of Culture and give inspiration to those who are looking to capture the awe and majesty of Epping Forest in art and photography - or looking forward to the next time they can visit.

In her own words Caroline explains, "My photobook ‘Follow the Light: A year in Epping Forest and Hollow Ponds’ explores the ancient woodland throughout the changing of the seasons. In the extraordinary year of 2020, the forest bordering London and Essex provided me with a place of tranquillity amongst the chaos of the outside world. Wandering between aged oaks and fields of yellow gorse, I documented the warm, dry spring in the first lockdown to the chilly winter days in the woodland. Discovering the beauty of nature through photography has positively benefited my mental wellbeing and I hope that you will find inspiration through my photographs of this special and unique place".  

The BBC has picked up on Caroline's work and published some of her pictures in an article here:

Additionally, Caroline has also written a blog piece on Urban Tree Fest, which gives an in-depth background to 'Follow the Light' and her photography of Epping Forest. Click here to read it.

For anyone interested in purchasing her book, it is available for purchase to the public at £20 for hardcover via Caroline's Instagram page @carolucyjones
