The M50 is a 24 mile stretch of dual carriageway running between the M5 in Gloucestershire through to Ross-on-Wye in Herefordshire. Opened in 1960, it is one of England’s oldest motorways and the only remaining example that retains it’s original two lane layout. This aside, it’s not a particularly remarkable road, a quiet passageway through open countryside to the Welsh border.
This new photo series will capture the juxtaposition and impact of this asphalt ribbon in its rural setting, documenting the junctions, overpasses, underpasses, traffic and life on and around it. December 2020 – ongoing.
