Trees

Trees are some of the most interesting and poetic looking features of our planet, and I’ve been seeing alot of interesting work on trees lately.  The Getty Museum, which is beautiful and worth a trip if you are in Los Angeles, has a really interesting collection of tree imagery which you can see more about here.  Among the most beautiful and strange of the collection was a photograph by South Korean photographer Myoung Ho Lee.  Myoung has been photographing Trees in front of large white backdrops separating them from their environment and allowing us to more easily look at them as objects.  I strongly urge you to have a look at his work which you can do at the always interesting Lens Culture Blog, where you can also purchase some of Myoung’s photographs.  Here are a few of the beautiful and mysterious trees that have inspired me in my travels:

  • Rawalpindi, Pakistan
  • Lhok Nga, Aceh, Indonesia
  • Sampit, Kalimantan, Indonesia
  • Manatuto, East Timor
  • Washington, D.C.
