AWAY FROM THE TREES
Local photographer Faraz Ravi has been photographing the trees in Cassiobury Park and Whippendell Woods for the past 3 years. Lamenting the loss of the morning walk, these photos were brought together during lockdown in a collection titled "Away from the Trees", 54 photos compiled into a 'zine' available from the photographer’s website
Faraz uses the traditional photographic process of capturing on film and printing in the darkroom. The prints are then chemically toned to add a warm or cool tint. The process is slow and expensive but provides the opportunity to give each photo a considered interpretation and realise the image on uniquely beautiful and timeless silver gelatin paper.
