I photograph trees that exemplify strength in the face of adversity. These are such times. (And still they persist). All my images depict life that has sustained injury and is healed or healing. "Who speaks for the trees?" (The Lorax and me.) They are our silent sentinels protecting us and nurturing us in a multitude of ways and yet are abused & taken for granted. The images of their wounds and of their evident healing calls attention to 'civilizations' insensitivity to that which matters most. The different textures of the healing areas is visually attractive, for me. I feel, there is tension inherent in those differences and they create energy and beauty. This is a political statement.
