Reflections: Somerset Floods, One Year On

Posted on May 22, 2015

Social Sciences at Bath Spa have worked on a creative collaboration with London photographer Matilda Temperley to explore, through documentary photography and social research, the impact of widespread flooding in Somerset in 2014 on families and everyday life. They shared their stories of the disaster and their road to recovery. The exhibition, which was displayed at Bath Royal Literary and Scientific Institution and at Bridgwater Arts Centre, was enjoyed by several thousand people. You can see many of the images and read the residents heartbreaking stories on BBC News Online.
