Marion Sidebottom

Photographer & Artist

My fine art photography embraces the concept of ‘Biophilia’ which is the idea that humans possess an innate tendency to seek connections with nature and other forms of life. As an artist I always notice the small details around me and wish that more people would walk through a woodland and admire the beauty of the natural world within it. From the macro details of a butterfly wing to the shape and textures of a magnificent ancient tree, nature never fails to surprise and inspire me.  I think this is something that most children do naturally but the process of growing up and the dealing with the pressures of life can sometimes destroy this natural curiosity for the world around us.
