Urban Vistas : Illusions of Nature
As so many of us live in metropolitan and suburban environments, separated from nature and surrounded by man-made edifices, how does society redress the balance? Trees tell us of the seasons, bring us into contact with nature and define and frame the urban landscape by creating a sense of place and identity.
Through documenting the humble urban tree planted in groves, copses or alone, well kept or disregarded the photographer Minna Kantonen explores the hyper-real portrayal of nature in the cityscape. Her poignant, captivating series of works URBAN VISTAS prompts the question are these trees just an illusion of nature?
