Beautiful Multi-Layered Trees

Perspective affects how each of us sees things. Experimental photographer Kim Boske explores the concepts of time and space and their effects on perspective through her multi-layered photography.

Boske, whose work is based in Amsterdam, is fascinated by the ever-changing world and how everyone has a different viewpoint, even when it comes to a single tree in an open field. In her series entitled Mapping, she presents several photos of a single tree, each captured at a different angle and time, merged onto one image. As a result, the viewer is seeing the whole tree in one layered image.

The technique that Boske uses is similar to that in yesterday's Our Face project by Ken Kitano. It involves overlapping numerous photos and projecting a single image. The more different images there are, the more blurred the resulting image will be. Boske's photography lies in a realm that transcends our visual world.
