Trees Growing in Sublime Nature

Medium: photography
Years: 2008 — current
Location: international

We typically separate what is “urban” from what is “nature”. The eerily mesmerizing photographs in the Trees Growing in Sublime Nature series instead suggests subtle moments of  interconnection. These still frames, photographed in cities around the world over the course of more than a decade, are at once austere and vividly powerful. Trees and buildings seem at times, to take on the presence of actors, and in doing so, question the imagined lines of separation that we erect between what it urban and what is nature.
