Notes:
"Early in 2008 plastic bags were headline news. Photographing them trapped in the branches of trees, I found that they took on an existence of their own in supernatural realm where images of fantasy and horror, dream and nightmare, formed and reformed as they moved in the wind. The book brings together a series of the images."--Information provided by the artist.
"After many years seeking the spirit of place, these photographs were taken in the early months of 2008, a time when wind flowers were prevalent across the land: in the newspapers, in the mouths of politicians and in the trees."--Verso of cover.
