Nature is a great source of inspiration. For the artist, Nature is a great source of inspiration. When the artist has a deep sense of belonging and respect for Nature and in particular for trees, everything is amplified.
Trees with their power to help living beings are often ignored. Yet, without them, there can be no life on earth.
We enjoy many benefits thanks to them, from the shade of their hair to the oxygen they give us every day.
The artist’s point of view
The artist wants to honor these gifts with his camera. The computerized graphics only serve to make the images more fascinating.
The main way of creation is to change the original hue, brightness and contrast of trees through images. That the uniqueness of each tree must be constantly searched since the shape of each of them is different. This requires keen discovery and observation to find out the advantages of trees. Through lens exploration and framing, the substantial images of trees become abstract forms.
People rely on trees.
Trees are essential to the earth. Trees don’t only grow in forests. They can be seen everywhere except in the Antarctic and the Arctic. Trees are also the largest plants on the earth. We all know that trees have a great influence on the earth’s environment and make a great contribution to human beings. For example, they can produce and supply oxygen and absorb harmful gases. Trees play the role of natural air conditioning keeping the climate warm in winter and cool in summer and controlling the greenhouse effect. They can stop the strike of wind and rain, conserve water and soil, slow down soil erosion and provide a shelter for wildlife. When the season comes, flowers and fruits will blossom and bear fruit. The color of the flowers will make people charmed, their fragrance will make people fascinated, and the fruits will make people feel sweet. Therefore, to love the earth, we need to have many kinds of trees and not to cut them down.
My work, Trees, is shot in a park, where people like to walk and take pictures to leave some beautiful life fragments, but few photographers simply choose tree as the theme to shoot and create! Maybe it’s because of the ordinary appearance of the tree itself, even if you can see it when you leave home, it rarely arouses the interest of shooting! What others ignore, give up and don’t care about is the best choice of art creators. Taking what others don’t with curiosity, I challenge myself with experimental spirit and uncover another layer of the tree’s appearance. This is the work I have presented to you.
