This deeply personal and ongoing series was short listed for Black + White Photographer of the Year 2015.
This project started in 2014 not long after a separation with my ex-wife and the beginning of a lifelong health condition which affected me physically, psychologically and emotionally. Slipping into depression I experienced a breakdown in Dalby Forest one day. As I was struggling to breathe with anxiety I had a blurred and confusing vision of the forest. I began to take images, completely involuntarily. Framing one scene then another with the camera in multi-exposure mode. Forest Visions was born and proves the healing effect that art can have on us as individuals. Art can literally save us; enabling us to work through trauma and face our demons head on from a more abstract place in our minds.
FineArt prints of the original triptych are available in the store at the link below. Other prints in the series available on demand so please contact me if you like anything else that you see.
Forest Visions print testimonials below...
“I first came across Karl’s work when I saw several of his pictures in the Moorsview exhibition portfolio on OnLandscape’s magazine. I was particularly struck by the monochrome triptych 'Forest Visions', which had an intriguing and ethereal quality. I then looked up Karl’s website and couldn’t resist buying two of the pictures as a “Christmas present to me”. The prints have a lovely soft glow, are clear yet delicate and hold a beautiful tone. They will have pride of place when I sort out the room they are going in. On top of this, Karl was attentive enough to send an email thanking me for the purchase and assuring me that he was available should there be any problems - there are none; they are beautiful.” David Hawkes
"I recently purchased a Forest Visions tryptich from Karl’s Home Range and I have to say that the prints look even more beautiful in real life. They are of such high quality and the Hahnemühle Agave paper really complements the gorgeous tones of the images. I had been looking for a set of three black and white prints and after much searching I found myself repeatedly coming back to Karl’s work. I find his photography to be something special in the way that he manages to capture a real sense of a place, to the point where I often feel as though I’m being drawn into his images. Karl was incredibly patient in helping me select images that worked well together when I was struggling to make my final choice, even providing examples of various tryptichs as part of the service. The Forest Visions are perfectly suited to the decor and feel of my room. The prints arrived very nicely packaged, and were a pleasure to open. I can’t wait to get them framed and finally hung in their rightful place." Nicola Parkinson.
