Entry Description

An ongoing nighttime series on urban trees and their locations. We pass these behemoths every day, barely noticing them. Yet they both guard and dominate our homes. Seen from overhead they blanket the city. Photographed at night on 4x5 film. Straight photography; no compositing. Technically challenging.
