This work explores the dynamic nature of trees as if they were individual people. Their physical characteristics create a metaphor about the struggles of life. Where adaption is found, one can also find growth. By defeating challenges, strength is developed.

Nontraditional perspective points and tight framing break the traditional norms of portraiture, creating balance between chaos and peace. Standing firm on their own, these trees have persevered through many things in their life.
