Escapees



During my residency I've enjoyed spending time walking around the streets of Grafton photographing elements of the natural and built environment. I've noticed many trees have outgrown their initial curb or ground enclosure. Some tree roots sprawl across bitumen, rippling the ground surface, while co-occupying or competing with parking space. I find the edge of environments interesting, the place where two different zones cross over, in permaculture this zone is an area of higher diversity. In a street scape I imagine it could be a place where values are weighed up - the tree or the carpark?
