Arbor Vitae (Tree of Life) is a series of backlit photographs that reveal the mysterious beauty of trees. The images are printed onto transparent film and displayed in light boxes. I use the circle as a framing device to both capture trees in their natural state and create enigmatic montages. In some of the images I pierce tiny holes in the film allowing pinpricks of light to shine through the images. The holes create the appearance of stars, molecules and flows of energy, and as such are intended to emphasize the spiritual connection we have with trees. I hope that my tree portraits will encourage the viewer to reflect on the tree as a symbol that ignites our imaginations and increase their awareness of how trees shape and enhance our physical environment.
