Artist's description:

This solitary tree lives somewhere in the central Italy countryscape. It's a common tree, nothing special, probably about 70-80 years old. But I choose him for taking this solargraphy photograph showing the tree itself that wear the spring leaves after the end of winter.
I carefully attached the pinhole camera to a nearby trunk when the tree was naked and, after two months, I pick up the camera when the tree was fully covered by leaves. Behind the tree, the sun design the daily arch. So, I think this photograph express the beauty and energy of nature's life.

Pinhole fotography is my preferred technique because it is possible to shoot a photograph of time, not only of the subject. And solargraphy is anextreme way to do this.
Also, with pinhole photography you returns to the origins of the photographic art: no technology, no automatic support, only a cardboard box, a small hole, a piece of B&W paper and your fantasy and capabilities.

The paper negative was reproduced and optimized digitally.
