Wisha Wisha Wisha Visiting the Rag Trees
For the past year, I have been traveling around the country to make portraits of rag trees. These beautiful trees are relics of an ancient Celtic tradition which has still survived in parts of Ireland to this day. In some areas these trees are believed to have curative properties but the story differs from tree to tree. Documenting these trees has been an important reflective process, highlighting for me the cyclic nature of popiular beliefs and religions, and the stalwarthy relationship of our natural environs to these beliefs.
