Portrait of a Big Tree – Last of the Christchurch series

This huge tree caught my attention because it looks like an elephant’s foot. The children were enjoying the tree too, running around and stretching their arms as far as they would go.

What if trees could tell a stories, what would they say? What would this tree’s story be? I wanted to use a series of photographs to explore the tree, in differing detail and see what emerged….

If you never see the whole tree, can you gain a true perspective of its presence?

NB: can you find the face in the last photo?
