Alan Withington of Roaring Tree – Photography with a sustainable aesthetic.
Alan’s photographs are a lesson in rediscovering the beauty all around us, encouraging us to see what lies upon our doorstep. Illustrating the point that we do not need to travel far to find something worth appreciating.
There are no Paris skylines or backlit Ayres Rock photographs among his portfolio.
“I am interested in things that are accessible on a daily basis. Working with these accessible subjects I strive to capture the ephemeral, the fleeting glance and that all important, often unintentional aesthetic within the natural/built environment and how sunlight interacts with it. The dominant image type within the portfolio is trees. I love their random yet planned forms occupying a geography all of their own as they lay claim to light and space.”
Alan does not use any special lighting effects during shooting or edit his work digitally after.
The prints are framed using reclaimed wood, diverting character filled old wood from the waste stream, a service than Alan also offers professionally.
