The ‘Balliang Tree’ project began as a single image, but not this image. In August 2016 dark clouds teased this tree and I couldn’t help but notice its form, in a way I was looking at myself. And so began a year long photographic series which became a metaphor for life, it reflects on the changes and challenges we face over a year or through stages of our lives.
I’ve found myself asking, ‘Where am I headed?’. You may find different questions or ideas as I release a new image of the ‘Balliang Tree’ each month.
It seems appropriate to begin with ‘January’.
