Leaning Parallel with Slanted Trees

Chicago-based photographer Paul Octavious has a knack for finding unique trees that lean in odd directions. In this series, called Lean With It, he locates oddly slanting trees and photographs his friends leaning at parallel angles. Taken across different times of day and different seasons, the images are an intriguing question of nature and gravity. Presumably, the photographer has incredible timing and captures each angle right before his subjects fall to the ground.

Octavious got his start as a photographer while studying graphic design. He wanted to create images that were different from the stock images his classmates were using, and since then, he has never put the camera down! He creates all kinds of work and consistently has a love for photographing single objects across a long period of time. You can see that dedication in his series Same Hill, Different Day.
