Richard Shilling makes sculptures from natural materials he gathers near to where each sculpture is made.

Richard at work

Every sculpture is photographed in natural light, using normal camera equipment and without any photoshop trickery. Each photo accurately depicts how each sculpture appeared, at its most vibrant moment, before the elements reclaim the materials back to nature.

Through his ongoing relationship with nature he explores themes to do with time, ecology and the constant flux of the seasons and expresses these ideas through his unique land art images.

You can see much more of his work and read all about what he gets up to on the photo sharing site Flickr and on his blog.
