The magical forests of Ellie Davies
Ellie Davies is a British photographer who has spent the last seven years photographing UK forests and turn them into artwork, giving them a fantastic and surreal atmosphere.
“Forests represent the encounter between nature, culture and human activity”, and “strong symbols in folklore, in fairy tales and myths; They are places of enchantment and magic, and danger and mystery. More recently they have been associated with psychological states referring to the unconscious. Contrary to these beliefs, my work seeks to explore the ways in which our identity is formed by the landscapes we grow and live. “writes the photographer on his website.
