Entry Description: These five photographs represent a sampling of the iPhone 4s no filter images made by Mark Hirsch for his year-long book project That Tree. While recovering from a near fatal car accident in 2012, Hirsch was inspired by a friend to use the camera in his iPhone 4S to document a year-long photo-a-day project focusing on an old bur oak tree. Hirsch embraced the challenge resulting in a transformative experience of healing, self-discovery, inspiration, and enlightenment.
