By chance I discovered that by turning the photograph upside down or sideways, sometimes there is another image that exists. For example, here is the original photograph of my character Tamara. This is how she appeared on the tree. When I flipped the photograph upside down I was amazed to see that it actually looked like two gorillas, hence the name Mama and Baby Gorilla.
UPDATE: This large, beautiful tree was felled during a recent wind storm. Visit my Instagram for pictures - link below.
A sneak peek at one of the characters in Finding Faces in Trees. Photographed at the Riverwood in Mississauga, see how I transformed it into a whimsical character.
