i’m jealous of zander olsen

Trees, wrapped in white and perfectly aligned with the horizon… hence the title of this beautiful work by Zander OlsenTree 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.”

Sigh. That first one kills me.

    Oh, I’m jealous, too! Zander Olsen obviously has a very fantastic eye. I’m sure I would never have thought of this in a million years.

    So what type of material is this? Was it removed? What happens now? It does look amazing – what a great idea! I’m an artist myself and am all for art, just wonder if it is bio-degradable. And if it was left on, etc.

    Wow! The best ideas are the simplest. I can’t stop looking at these. I think the third and fourth are my favorites, but they are all wonderful. Thanks so much for sharing this.

    Beautiful images. Remind me of “Brandenburg 1995”, a picture of Belgian photographer Michiel Hendryckx.

    If you like Zander Olsen’s Tree Line Project, check out Andy Goldsworthy. I’m certain Olsen took inspiration from his work.

    These are a direct rip off of John Pfahl. He did this same exact thing in the 70’s.
