Everything in nature in some way exudes a euphoric truth. It’s not always immediately visibile, yet it is there; it just takes time to see. In my work I attempt to capture a certain awareness of this truth. In this ongoing series on trees I use photography and invention to reconstruct the emotions and sensations from my physical experience with the tree.

PHOTOGRAPHY Trees and Places

Herman Hesse wrote: 

"For me, trees have always been the most penetrating preachers. I revere them when they live in tribes and families, in forests and groves. And even more I revere them when they stand alone. They are like lonely persons. Not like hermits who have stolen away out of some weakness, but like great, solitary men, like Beethoven and Nietzsche. In their highest boughs the world rustles, their roots rest in infinity; but they do not lose themselves there, they struggle with all the force of their lives for one thing only: to fulfill themselves according to their own laws, to build up their own form, to represent themselves. Nothing is holier, nothing is more exemplary than a beautiful, strong tree"
