Green Poles I (David Simmonds 2013 - work in progress)
A limited edition series of photographs exploring the contrast & beauty of indigenous forms with the built environment. “Green Poles I” takes the vibrant colours of trees seen only when the trunks are wet, bringing out the colours of bark & trunk, setting them in high relief against the softer forms of the built environment. This is in stark contrast to how we normally see the urban world where the man-made is in the forefront of our experience. Here, David reverses the normal experience, dropping the built environment into soft relief while the tree trunks call for our attention.
