A Tree: A Year

This is the latest collage that I have completed. It is made up of hundreds of photographs taken over a year of a mature magnolia tree which is situated on Hampstead Heath. The tree varies enormously across the the year and through bringing together many different seasonal images, I wanted to try and show the magnificence of such a tree. 

We are living in a time when trees are under huge stress - whether through huge sweeping destructive forces such as deforestation, disease and fire to just small human actions like removing a tree to lay a concrete on a drive way.

This work is currently exhibited at Kenwood House Cafe.
