Ellie Davies: The Dwellings

Posted by Charlotte Simmonds,

Here’s a series for anyone who has ever dreamed of running away to the woods, living off the land and mingling with the forrest creatures. Ellie Davies intentionally taps into these primal urges with a breadth of work that explores our relationship with nature. These “woodland dwellings” were made using a variety of building techniques – both traditional and experimental – to create structures that are as much a part of the wild environment as they are a respite from it. Their gaping hollows offer not only an invitation to enter, but an invitation for the imagination that Davies’ photography so actively encourages.
