The aim of these photographs was to illustrate a sense of confusion, where even something as ubiquitous as a tree has an element of unfamiliarity about it.

They were taken very early in the morning in Bristol in 2010 over the festive period – a time when many people are assessing the kind of year they have had and what, if anything needs to change for the new year.

The effect of the overnight snow on the ground mirroring the heavy white clouds above created a sense of not being entirely sure which way was up, hence the title of this project.
