Wonderland #3: Trees Thriving in Glorious Nature

We typically separate what is “urban” from what is “nature”. The photographs in Wonderland #3: Trees Thriving in Glorious Nature suggests subtle moments of  interconnection. Photographed in cities around the world over the course of more than a decade, these frames depict moments where trees and buildings seem to take on the presence of actors, questioning the imagined lines of separation that we erect between our cities and the rest of the natural world.
