Tree, Line

“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.”






Work by Zander Olsen.

I love stuff like this… these are brilliant!


  1. this is INCREDIBLE. such union of nothingness, and physical presence. creates such a connection between earth and sky. wow. powerful!

  2. Hi. I am apologizing because I do not want to sound like a jerk or an idiot, and I am not trying to be honest. But I don’t understand the purpose of the tree wrapping? I see how neatly the horizon bg and tree forefront is connected, but I still dont undertand why. To me it removes the nature from nature. I really want to understand becasue I am seriously intrigued. Thank you.

  3. In Costa Rica they paint the bottom of trees white in order to keep ants and other bugs away from the trees and leaves.. they don’t create symmetrical lines like this but its still really strangely beautiful!

  4. the great thing about art and its relationship to the viewer, is that you don’t always have to “understand it” or “get it”. You are intrigued? That might just be enough….
