Aerial Trees Make Abstract Art

  • Posted by Neil Simonton on March 2, 2011 in Art
  • As a rule, tree farms are less interesting to us than forests. The perfectly spaced rows of trees have nothing on the wild natural jumble of a free standing forest. But there's an exception to every rule, and, errr, this is no exception. Hanging cameras from kites and fishing poles, Dutch photog Gerco de Ruijter captures aerial views of tree farms that come off looking like geometric abstract paintings. 

    The photo series, called Baumschule, obscures the lines between two very different artistic traditions, asking, as de Ruijter puts it, “How abstract can a landscape become while remaining a landscape?”
