During the summer of 2012 David spent 6 weeks camping on Darnet Island in the Medway Estuary, and canoeing the inner and outer Estuary. He lived partly off the food he found there and recorded life with a variety of means including a pinhole camera made from driftwood. A book has been produced detailing the project. The book is illustrated with pinhole photographs and contains fold out, hand drawn maps of Darnet Island and the Medway Estuary that will be of use to canoeists, boaters and history buffs. The regular edition has a pale green cover and is hand stamped and numbered - no two books are the same.

"The Energy that comes from reducing a scene or experience to its raw bones is captivating, and David Wise has it down to an art."
