tall timber

“Tall Timber”, 67 x 45 cm, tree cut from book “Jungles” by Franz Lanting

Lanting photographed the tropical rainforests in order to show their Kaleidoscopic nature saying that “while the essence of photography is to show, jungles hide, or at best, suggest”. In this piece the photographic lens becomes the human perspective, searching to find, fix and process unexplored arenas for growth or materials for expansion. Nature here is thriving, yet as the title suggests, it is her resources that are under observation.
