Trees by Bosgra
Project info

In my series Trees by Bosgra I reflect on my youth and my family history by making images of trees in English landscape gardens that are grown by my ancestors in the family tree nursery. The tree nursery existed since 1700 and supplied trees to hundreds of estates and parcs in the Netherlands. One of my happiest memories is to escape in my dreamworld among these trees in the landscape garden of my ancestral home, the old rectory in Hardegarijp. In this series I searched for a depiction of that dreamworld, as a sublimated childhood memory.
