Out on a Limb

Throughout history, people have migrated from one continent to another carrying seeds and saplings with them, greening their new terrains with familiar leaves. I photograph these non-native species, along with indigenous trees, on European boulevards, Mediterranean walkways, and American footpaths. Photographing close-up, I give few clues to the locales where these tree trunks tower.

Out on a Limb is a plea to save the arbor.

I depict blanched wood, gnarled limbs, and slender trunks aping young lovers entangled in embrace. Peering at colossal trees, I notice ashen bark weathered by age and wood swelling with disease—mirroring the human condition.
