Celebrating the arrival of autumn with some Tree Art 💚
The Waiting, 2011, by Garry Fabian Miller 🍃🍂
From a distance, this grid of 120 birch leaves from various times of the year ‘reads’ like a set of uniformly coloured shade cards. On closer inspection, however, it becomes clear that no two leaves are identical in either shape or colour. British photographic artist @garryfabianmiller has worked without a camera since 1984, creating images directly on light-sensitive paper, a method that recalls the earliest days of photography in the mid-19th century in which light is both medium and subject. His use of long exposures gives his work an inevitable chronological aspect that in one sense replicates the processes of photosynthesis and the changing of the seasons.
