Trees

After working with a number of young swimmers diagnosed with idiopathic scoliosis (curvature of the spine) I began developing an ongoing series of crooked tree photographs in order to correct them. The notion of correctness and what that constitutes is of great significance as often the process of 'correction' causes other situations to emerge.

The trees have been digitally corrected in some way, some have been burned with a laser to damage the surface of the photograph, purposefully scarring it but in a planned, purposeful way with diagrams developed from clinical diagnostic imagery processes.
