Simon Baxter's woodland photography is astonishing. Below is an extended conversation (edited for length) between Simon and our Editor Sam about Simon's slow, local, emotionally attuned process.
Simon discovered his passion for woodland photography while exploring his local countryside in pursuit of solitude and the restorative power of creativity in nature. Recognising the therapeutic benefits of spending time in woodlands close to home, Simon has developed a unique connection and love for this environment, which is expressed through his thoughtful photography. Six years of his work has been curated for his debut book, 'Gathering Time', which is available through his website. Simon also shares his knowledge, relaxed approach to photography and explorations with his dog, Meg, on his popular YouTube channel and Instagram.
