Marion Sidebottom

Nature-Based 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. The project was kindly funded by Arts Council England through Grants for the Arts and 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.
