Zander Olsen- Tree line

Zander Olsen has created his site specific series Tree Line by wrapping trees in white and photographing them lined perfectly up to the horizon to create an interesting perception of the environment, almost artificially cutout. I particularly like the ones that use the foreground and background horizon to let the trees blend into the background giving it a look of being either cutout or reversed.
‘This is an ongoing series of constructed photographs rooted in the forest. These works, carried out in Surrey, Hampshire and Wales, involve site specific interventions in the landscape, ‘wrapping’ trees with white material to construct a visual relationship between tree, not-tree and the line of horizon according to the camera’s viewpoint.’
