Series

Untitled from Series “One Seed A Thousand Dreams
In 2001, a dream was realised, inspired by the book, The Man Who Planted Trees and nearly 200,000 native trees were planted, (almost all) by hand by one man, on two separate sites in Devon. This series is a selection of images from a bigger series that documents the changing landscape, the realisation of this dream and portrays the life of the man in his pursuit of a sustainable future and the return of a landscape to its natural state. This work is an ongoing project continuing to document the landscape as it changes during Gordon’s life-time and mine.
