This is just a small selection from this unusual project - a couple of films and some of my photography to give a taste. The best way to find out more is to visit the Fault Line Living site here
In 2010 the intrepid Davies sisters and myself entered the Royal Geographical Society and Land Rover “Go Beyond” bursary. Much to our surprise, we won. Soon we setting off in our custom-made Landie on a 15,000 journey along the world’s most dangerous fault lines, documenting the intriguing and perilous lives of those who live along them.
Fault lines are where the natural world most catastrophically collides with the human world. Cities can be torn apart, and children grow up knowing an earthquake drill before they know a nursery rhyme. On the other hand, the benefits and even the allure of living near a fault line can outweigh the risks.
Driving along these fault lines, we wanted to explore the human stories of those living in such danger zones, as well as tell the story of our driving experience as it all unfolded. We also worked with prominent scientists and geological experts in this field, looking at cutting edge technological projects and dramatic stories of innovation.
