Limited edition portfolio of platinum prints
The platinum prints featured in the Cader Idris portfolio, are images of one particular part of the mountain, the 'relict' oak wood on the southern slopes. Formed after the last period of glaciation eight to ten thousand years ago, the wood has a haunting quality of light and atmosphere at all times of the year. This special place is, however, passed through quickly by the many visitors to the mountain 'on route' to the summit, and consequently much of these qualities are missed.
By producing a boxed set of platinum prints, it has been possible to allow the viewer to unlock a part of that 'spirit of place', that makes this mountain so special. Each of the ten images in the portfolio is accompanied by a 'Haiku', written by the photographer while on the mountain itself.
