I love it when a print that you wouldn't really expect to sell starts to acquire interest from diverse corners and the enthusiasm for its unusual qualities is the thing that is selling it. The Tree was made with a Lomo Sprocket Rocket and was multiple exposed in Ruskin park in South London. I was doing a shoot for some locations and it was still early spring, the trees were not yet wearing their leaves and the wonderful branches and twigs were a tangle against the sky. It seemed only appropriate to look up and make pictures of the silhouettes and of course to turn the camera a number of ways to give me layers of twig upon branch, the textures that resulted were very much like a batik or some cloth, I love the way this one turned out and there are a couple more like it.
