Tree made of real woodSeptember 16, 2008
Is a series of colour (rare for me) photos about urban trees. The series got a brief outing as part of the Kiosk Gallery / Comma Films ‘Spectangular’ event which was part of the New Islington Festival held last week in a damp Ancoats. Spectangular was held inside a shipping container and featured projections of short films and slide shows from different photographers. The title of my bit comes from an Ivor Cutler song. The series says trees in cities are just a way for developers to hide the concrete – nature never looked so unnatural. Anyroad, the whole lot might get a second airing at Manchester’s Urbis on Saturday 27 September 12pm/2pm/4pm.
