La Bambouseraie photos : tim perceval

About the Book
A collection of images from the famous Bamboo Park near Anduze, France.
The full double page spreads convey the immensity of these majestic trees, the way they control light and colour beneath the canopy.
Using an abstract approach the play of texture, tonality and reflection is combined to express the essence of the park.
Included are some striking abstract reflections in water which appear to add a third dimension to the page with vivid, daubs of paint-like ripples.
