The concept for this project of Identity was to look at my own exploration into zen buddhism. The inspiration began with the symbol of an enso which in turn lead me towards photographing trees. Trees are an entity which are not usually paid much solid attention to, just normally making up the landscape of a journey or scene.

In my own practise, I began photographing trees which I came across in post meditation walks. Each chosen tree had a strong draw towards it which encouraged me to photograph it. When it came to the printing stage, the prints were made through my current interpretation of a tree form at the point of painting the developer onto paper. Each print is unique and imperfect in a different way. Much like the true enso circle.
