Straightened Trees

(2016 - now)

Each image begins as a large format photo of a curvy tree in front of orthogonal shapes such as a building or power lines. The image is reorganized so that the tree is perfectly straight and centered, with the rest of the landscape warping around it. This is accomplished through the careful application of Photoshop distortion tools, along with custom software written by the artist. Shown as silver gelatin prints.
