A walk through the forest landscape, which gradually conveys a fairy tale sense of unease. The images are interspersed with Latin names alluding to the true nature of the forest. The walk through becomes an ethereal confusion, and yet on reflection from the other side, the forest looks as appealing as it did on entering. Images are from original, manipulated photographs taken in forests in the south-west of England and Wales.
