'I believe in the imagination’……..’To photograph reality is to photograph nothing.’ Duane Michals.
I have always enjoyed making images of trees. I am fascinated by their shapes, colours and textures. When the viewer allows their eyes to look up from underneath the canopy, they enter a hidden woodland, contained only by branches and leaves, with a background of sky and occasionally a subtle landscape. The Brecks near where I live, is an area containing some very iconic trees. Their deep dense foliage, twisted and crooked branch shapes, can be seen grouped together and dotted across the mainly flat landscape.
