Stunning Tree Mosaics by Noel Myles

How breathtaking are these? For the last 15 years, photographer Noel Myles has taken photos of the countryside in eastern England, in places like Suffolk and Wormingford, and then arranged them to create these stunning tree mosaics. I love how he has only certain parts of the tree in color, leaving the rest in a somber gray. Reminds me of Kevin Day’s beautiful series where he photographs the same tree on different days and through several seasons.

Myles composes his images using over a hundred separate 35 mm negatives. They are palladium prints. “Palladium along with platinum and gold comprise the Noble Metals. I make light-sensitive salts with palladium and coat artist's pure cotton paper by hand. The negatives are then exposed in contact with the paper to make the image. Each individual rectangle in these pictures corresponds to a complete (uncut) negative. Many dozens of negatives are sorted before the final image is composed. They can be taken over the period of several weeks."

His goal? To recreate a memory of a time and place.

Myles will be presenting a selection of his works at the Gainsborough’s House in Suffolk, UK from March 31, 2012 to June 23, 2012.
