Marion Sidebottom

Photographer & Artist, MA, ARPS, RHS Silver Gilt

I am an artist and photographer based in Essex and was the Artist-in-Residence at the City of London’s Corporation's Epping Forest from April 2017 to March 2018. My project was called “You Can’t See the Trees for the Woods!”. A key aim of the project was to explore how visual images can engage people’s interest in ancient trees and the forest by showing them from many different viewpoints. I hope that my work encourages people to view important trees within the forest not only as valuable assets to the environment but also for their cultural value to people on a personal level. I documented my journey on my Wordpress Blog, Twitter and Facebook. Click the link to the Project Information page below to find out more.
