Hidden Portfolio: Westonbirt "Trunk-traits"

Tree portraits that look at the variation and biodiversity of bark found in Westonbirt Arboretum

This is a portrait series of tree trunks which looks at the variation and biodiversity of bark found in Westonbirt Arboretum. Placing the tree’s label centrally gives a point of focus and encourages us to look closer at the tree as an individual while providing a sense of continuity in the series. With each photograph in the series adopting the same composition, this highlights the complex differences between species in colour, texture and shape that makes a tree’s bark unique.
