Images of ageing Willow trees on Toronto Islands, many no longer present because of flooding, erosion, disease and life span. Willows can continue to grow for 75 years with trunks are up to 22 feet in circumference. I was first drawn to the Willows by the texture of their bark and then began photographing their unique marks and shapes. I also wanted to document them before they disappeared from the land. The work was shot with a Yashica twin-lens film camera.
