Not Exactly Nature Writing is a series of photographs made in the local landscape of the celebrated nature writer Roger Deakin (1943-2006) who lived at Walnut Tree Farm on the edge of Mellis common, Suffolk for almost forty years. The photographs offer a glimpse at the home that Deakin built and some of the objects from his daily life that were scattered around the garden and meadows. Six years later Partyka began returning to Mellis, exploring the common and its surrounding fields and tracks, such as Cowpasture Lane. These photographs are a search to try and discover what had attracted Roger Deakin to this little patch of Suffolk.
