Photomontages of Trees Appear Like Impressionist Paintings

Pep Ventosa gives our cities' trees the attention they deserve in this beautiful series he calls In the Round – Trees. Though they first appear like impressionist paintings, you'd be surprised to find out that they're actually dozens of photographs of the same tree merged into one. Ventosa circles a tree, shooting it multiple times at all different angles. Though he gives each tree center stage, one can make out some faint, ghostly outlines of objects that surround them like cars, other trees and even buildings. As he told Garden Design, “Whatever is around it becomes the spirit of the place, but not the main thing. Somehow it's like [giving] the tree the leading role in those otherwise very complex environments.”
