“In our front garden is a cherry tree. It looks like a normal every day tree, you don’t even give it a second look. But for two weeks of the year, in the early spring, it is the most beautiful tree in the garden, full of colour and magic. This series is from the lockdown. Exploring the magic of nature, natural light and the glorious emergence of the English spring.

Beautiful spring blossom photographed on a luxury gold background basking in natural light.

This tree lives in my garden, it is barley noticeable throughout the year but as spring emerges it bursts into life. This year I sat with it I burnt special incense and asked if I could take a branch and share its beauty with the world.

“Bitter winter winds –
in the garden the sleeping
cherry blossoms wait
for spring sun to awaken –
I can only dream.” – Death Poem of Masashi Kenata – 1538 – 1580”

Gregory Davies Photographer

ARTIST BIO
GREGORY DAVIES

Gregory Davies is a professional photographer with 20 years of experience in photography and regularly commissioned by household brands and institutions including The Boutique Workspace, Marriott International, Ritz London, Oxford University, Salesforce, Byron & Byron, Moroccan Bazar, Poker Stars UK and Alibaba.com. Gregory received his first camera at the age of 23 before setting off on his travels and immediately fell in love with photography. After spending a few years in the private sector, he decided to leave and follow his passion. Since then, his unique way of capturing moments has been sought after in commercial, interior and portrait photography and has earned him industry recognition and awards including three times Best Houzz Interior Awards in Design Photography.

At the heart of Gregory’s practice is the drive to capture the moment and fleeting emotions within it. Using his lens as a magnifying glass, Gregory’s insatiable and at times obsessive curiosity leads him to delve deep into each subject in a frantic and restless search for the perfect shot. Simultaneously detached as an observer and involved in the moment, Gregory finds, through his camera, a way to engage with his environment. A strong sense of wonder and fortuitous encounters guide the next exploration that catches his eye.

“When taking a photograph, you capture a moment in time and aspects of this moment that you might not even be consciously aware of at the time. Looking at the image afterwards suddenly all the stories unfold from that snapshot in time. That's the driving force when I shoot.”

From people to places, Gregory’s photographs are soul-enriching anthropological studies of the present moment. Through his photographs, Gregory’s intention is to convey a feeling that creates wonder and sparks the imagination of the viewer. Intuitively, he picks up his camera and takes us with him on his journey into the unknown. There is a beautiful and simultaneously terrifying freedom and a love for adventure inherent to Gregory’s practice. Letting go of anything else but the present moment and the freedom that comes with the lack of expectations, Gregory opens the door to the unknown world of possibilities for us. Through Gregory’s lens, each captured moment becomes a celebration of the ephemeral and transient living memories of places in motion.
