The Hepworth Wakefield

Recently we visited the Hepworth Gallery in Wakefield. The gallery was hosting a large collection of works by the photographer Philip Lorca diCorsica 1975 - 2012. 

The main section of the Hepworth Gallery

As well as featuring a lot of his work, the exhibit also showed some of his bodies of work, including Streetwork, and A Storybook Life. 
The work was absolutely stunning. The amount of detail and emotion was immense. There was no piece  within the exhibition that I didn't think was up to standard. The photographs had such intensity, it was hard not to be drawn into it.   

This was my favourite piece within the exhibition. From a distance this photograph looks like a painting. But this isn't the main reason why I have favourited this piece of work. The reason is because of how busy the piece is. The different shapes and colours blending to become one. It is so interesting, and I find I can look at it for a long time. After a while it becomes a mystery of what the image is. Is it a tree any more?
