Zander Olsen's Tree Line Project

This is an ongoing series of constructed photographs, by Zander Olsen, 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.’

The way the viewers perspective is changed by the paintings on the trees is extremely interesting to me. It makes them blend with the landscape in a way that our eyes wouldn't see otherwise. I love how the landscape is given a new look.
