I cannot believe how quickly the last year has gone and I am in the last few days of my artist residency in Epping Forest. My last official day is 2nd April, Bank Holiday Monday and this is also when the exhibition finishes. I will be there all day so if anyone would like to pop in you would be very welcome. Thank you to everyone who has attended so far, I really do appreciate your support, encouragement and comments. It is through this interaction that I find out how my work is received.
The new edition of Forest Focus magazine has a centrefold about the project which is on pages 12 & 13. Click here to read an online copy on issuu.
The project & exhibition has also featured in the following magazines & newspapers recently:
Royal Photographic Society Journal, March edition
Epping Forest Guardian
WRENS Conservation Group Autumn/Winter Newsletter
Forest Leaves Spring 2018, newsletter of the Epping Forest Conservation Volunteers
New YouTube Channel
To my kids surprise I now have a YouTube channel for Marion Sidebottom Photography. I am not planning on embarrassing tree selfie videos (and believe me I did try this at one point) but I have uploaded the slideshows with soundbites to accompany the exhibition. I have separated the full 35 minute film into the 12 different stories which are just a few minutes each. I have 4 subscribers and not many views so I am counting on you to have a quick look, especially if you were involved in the project. You can also share the videos to your Facebook or Twitter directly from YouTube.
Exhibition prints are available with a special discount for the Tree Story galleries for participants of the project. Contact me for details.

I will be taking orders at the View on Monday 2nd April or you can email me directly. I would like to do a bulk order on Friday 6th April which will save on postage and they will be available to collect from the View Visitor Centre, alternatively I could post them to you at an additional cost. All galleries are on my website and I will need to know the gallery name and image number. Please contact me for details if you cannot find what you are looking for and I will be happy to help.
You can share images and galleries directly from my website to your own social media using the share button on the bottom right of the images in each gallery.
