For a long time now I have photographed trees.  They are beautiful and hold a mystery and power that is universal wherever you go. Especially woods, there is a sense of peace and calm in a wood. I try to capture this in the photographs I take and am beginning a project where I investigate how we reflect upon our relationship with trees. There are many beautiful examples of this in literature and folk law and it is this area I will concentrate on.  In folk law trees are symbolic and often have different meanings depending on the type of tree, the month it produces fruit or where it grows and its characteristics . We can relate to these these things and find connections in our everyday lives. The images I have submitted are a  simple selection of my work as part of my research.
