Charles Moore writes in the foreword of In Praise of Shadows that ‘One of the basic human requirements is the need to dwell, and one of the central human acts is the act of inhabiting, of connecting ourselves, however temporarily, with a place on the planet, which belongs to us and to which we belong.’ Themes of attachment, belonging and home are at the heart of my work. I dreamt of afternoons in the forest. iis a small project of a larger body of work. It is the portrait of a displaced tree and documents its life over eight months (images in chronological date order). But not only is it of a tree but something more, something deeper and something much more intangible.
