Art & Design
We’re plain knocked over by the beautiful photographic art of Zander Olsen. Taking textiles and wrapping the trunks of trees, he plays with the perception of the foreground, background and the horizon in a way that is so surprising and delightful. The effect of wrapping the trunks where it hits right at the horizon makes these photos almost look like they were Photoshopped, but they weren’t. In the artist’s words:
“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.” More here.
