Concerning Trees by Nico van Dongen

Enter this fantastical world and get lost. And found.

These trees, forests and vistas beckon you to enter an experience that re-examines time and place.

Each final photograph is the result of hours of production work combining multiple exposures and layering as one image–with evocative results.

The artist has ultimately created a two-dimensional echo chamber that transports you and asks you to observe with awareness and heightened consciousness. And in this state, with your own memories and longing, may it also give you a more personal connection with trees.

“The layers allow us to touch what we like about nature. That’s why I would want one in my house. Looking at it gives me the ability to have that energy in my own home because I can’t have a big tree there.”
~ Jeffrey Levin, Poet and/the Bench goldsmith and curator
