“My creative vision for this series evolved over a couple of years when I started to photograph a group of palms in Malaga, Southern Spain. My first visit captured only one image which I truly loved but a return trip gave more success….I was struck each time by their looming height, their almost regal bearing, which when I laid on the ground, formed stunning, abstract shapes above.
The palms co exist in such proximity whilst allowing different perspectives and angles to be seen.
Photographed in black and white in order to better show shape, form and texture, the images reflect the nobility of these trees, their sheer height, their comfortable swaying closeness and great age.
My work is a response to the thoughts I have about our insignificance as humans, our limited time on earth and persistent inability to live together in an often turbulent world.”
