London Bloom

Art book.

The absence of leaves during winter reveals the hidden structure of trees and the urban objects that have been trapped in the branches. Many objects were found including a whole bunch of balloons, inflatable animals, kits, scarves, beanies and plastic bags. The objects looked as though they were blooming flowers.

The book is A5 with french folded pages and is bound using found plastic bags. The images have not been altered or exposed in postproduction and have been laid out without consideration to how they fell on each page. They were imported in date sequence. The end result is a stunning and random expression of London in winter.
