ARTmonday: Zander Olsen’s Tree, Line

This eries of photographs by Zander Olsen, taken between 2004 and 2010 involves “site specific intervention of the landscape” in the forests of Surrey, Hampshire, and Wales. Olsen wraps trees with white material “to construct a visual relationship between tree, not-tree and the line of horizon according to the camera’s viewpoint.” I searched for more information about Olsen, and additional works, but while these images have been blogged about numerous times, nobody else seems to have interviewed him or turned up any further information or photos. Zander Olsen, are you out there? In any case, these seemed fitting as it’s fall here in Boston, and the leaves are turning color, swirling down, opening up views of  new horizons.

  1. Very interesting, especially the fact that it seems he truly wrapped the trees and did not choose the photoshop shortcut:)

Let's talk style.
