Gustavo Espinosa: The Essence of Trees

Beautiful, large scale close-up photographs of trees in Derbyshire, exploring pattern and detail. Curiously hypnotic.

“The essence of trees is wood; heartwood, sapwood and bark. In the life of a tree, it is the wood which grows. Leaves, blossom seeds, needles and cones are ephemeral; they pass with the seasons, but the wood of the tree endures.

These images are made from photographs of a wide variety of trees: growing trees, dying trees, trees cut down or fallen, rotting wood returning to the earth. The photographs were made on walks in the countryside, in ancient forests and once-landscaped parks.

Trees are the lungs of the countryside, the signifiers of its health, and the essence of trees is wood.”

Gus Espinosa, 2019.

Exhibition runs 7 September – 12 October 2019

The Smallprint Co is closed Fridays and Sundays.
