Under the Leaves
“Under the leaves, something is happening, something is growing that will not abate until they return there for good”
Under the Leaves is a work striving to change our perception of vegetation. It is imbued with reverence for the silence and constancy of trees and flora. It intends to give a presence to vegetation, to emphasize that it is living of another kind of life than ours, that we cannot fathom, unconscious, obscure.
At the same time, these photographs suggest that something is brewing there, a kind of discontent, that we are not aware of, that we cannot perceive, but that we could try to hear.
