The Canadian artist and photographer Karen McRae recently contacted me with a brilliant idea – she had taken a series of eerie pictures of trees, wrapped against the winter frost, and would I like to create a piece of writing in response. I said yes immediately – I loved the imagery, the strangeness of seeing these warped, bound forms against a barren landscape. The result was ‘The Plantation Loop’, which you can read on her excellent blog, next to her images. Read/view here.
I hope they pair well, and are appropriately creepy for this thin moment of the year.
