The Soul of the Tree

Ever since a visit to remote Italian village Cori, I have been fascinated and drawn by the poetic mysticism and stories unfolded by the trunks and formations of hundreds of years old olive trees. This inspiration has resulted in the art project, The Soul of the Tree, in which the mythical and biblical olive tree, which symbolizes love, peace and creation is captured by my camera lens and visualized through artworks of soulful olive trees seen in their bucolic surroundings.



“My collaboration with Vigga Bro springs from a common fascination of trees a fantasies about which creatures hides in the trees.” – Ingrid Bugge

The Soul of the Tree – art book

For thousands of years, tales have been written and told about the soul of the olive tree. It has been mystified and entangled with symbolic meaning.
The Soulful Tree book project reveals these stories, written by Danish actress and performer Vigga Bro, as they are intertwined between my pieces.
Printed on acid free elephant dung paper, the images are bound together in this hand-made artist book. The hand-made book is made in 25 editions.
