The photographs of Mary Macpherson – with a dash of poetry

Bent

leave a comment »

Well, that’s the new and final title (the third iteration) of my work on trees. Bent refers to how the life of trees is shaped by the uses that humans have for them. The title emerged after intensive sequencing of 77 images by me and Peter, who put the final work together. It’s amazing when the clarity of what your work is about swims up after a long period of searching. I’m now digesting the new form – walking round it like it’s a new version of me, viewed from the outside. And going through the 77 images and polishing work prints before moving to the many next stages.

The work is diverse – when do my ideas and thoughts about a subject not travel? – here’s a couple of images.
