‘Gathering Time’ is a photographic book by professional woodland photographer, Simon Baxter. It expresses the calm, quiet awe and emotion of woodland, as well as Simon’s unique connection to this beautifully complex world. Driven by the freely available therapeutic benefits of nature close to home, Simon has spent several years crafting woodland images to communicate his fascination with trees and appreciation for the sanctuary their home has provided.
Foreword by Joe Cornish
Essay by Lucy Jones
“It requires many further levels of awareness, artistry and understanding to produce the body of work in the pages that follow.” – Joe Cornish
“Gathering Time is the perfect title for a book comprised of the best of the best of Simon’s hours, months & years spent amongst trees and nature. What I love is that there’s nothing superficial about this, from the production quality and feel of the book to the perfectionist compositions and beautiful rendering. A book I will revisit many times.” – Colin Bell
“The depth of the work, in both the literal sense of its multi-dimensionality, and his attention to light, atmosphere, air, textures of the bark, colours of the leaves, is uniquely transportative and deeply sensitive.” – Lucy Jones
