Marion says:

‘Over the last couple of months I have been busy preparing for my exhibition which will be at the gallery in the View Visitor Centre in Chingford from 3rd March until 2nd April This is the culmination of my year’s artist residency at Epping Forest. I have met many interesting people along the way who have kindly allowed me into their lives to observe, photograph and interview them. Of course I have hundreds of images but as an artist I also want to interpret this information in my own unique way so you can see the forest through my eyes.

This exhibition is the culmination of Artist-in-Residence, Marion Sidebottom’s, year-long project exploring how visual images can engage people’s interest in ancient trees and the Forest.

Spoiler alert: this excellent exhibition stars Tricia Moxey in a huge photomontage illustrating Connectivity in Nature. Tim Harris and James Heal also feature.

Marion says about our exhibition at the Temple:

‘The WREN Group Tree Photography Exhibition’

‘I was pleased recently to meet the WREN Wildlife and Conservation Group at the Temple in Wanstead. I attended a short walk led by Tim Harris the Chairperson and then attended their beautiful exhibition with the theme ‘Trees in the Landscape’. I got the opportunity to talk to members about their images and then talked about my project and displayed a small selection of prints from my Ancient Trees of Epping Forest exhibition.’

‘Trees in the Landscape’ photographic exhibition


Photo Exhibition

‘Trees in the Landscape’ photographic exhibition at the Temple Our second exhibition is now on display at the Temple during weekend opening hours until early spring. The twenty-one photographs show various aspects of trees in the Wanstead and Epping Forest area, in all seasons from winter snow to autumn glory. Some images show details such as fungi doing its work, birds using nest holes, and spring catkins, and others show the sheer beauty of trees and groups of trees both in a forest and a more urban setting. The exhibition launch was very timely as it coincided with National Tree Week, bringing home the message that trees everywhere are a vital part of the ecosystem and it is essential that we protect them.
These photographs had to be selected from 240 entries and it was heartening that the project inspired so many people to take their cameras, go out there and think about how to take a good picture of a tree.

The Launch was preceded by a walk for 30 people, led by Tim Harris, and was attended by over 50 people who enjoyed a good natter and some excellent tea and cake.Thanks to Wren volunteers for this. Many thanks also to Committee Member Tony Morrison for printing and framing the images so brilliantly.

In addition to local Councillor Paul Merry, we were lucky to welcome Epping Forest Artist in Residence Marion Sidebottom, who displayed some of her meticulous photographs of ancient Forest trees. We hope to see more of her work in future.
