Time Moves Still







The trees, isolated against an open sky and truncated from their source of life, their roots and earth, expose their transience in an undeniable way. When I scoured the landscape for trees, I looked for those that expressed a form that was very dynamic, particular, and peculiar, but never manicured to look good. I am especially attracted to trees that have been badly and asymmetrically pruned, normally to clear them from electrical wires and such. These take on an unintended beauty through the transformation of photography that they may not hold in actuality. I approached each tree as I would approach a portrait of someone with whom I had a personal relationship, by spending extended periods of time observing and staring before photographing.
