This tree’s bark naturally grows lips
Matter of Trust was the fiscal agent for this eco-educational project in New York. With artistic vision, Cedric Pollet looks closely at trees, revealing the spectacular beauty of tree bark. Coming from a scientific background, he combines art and science in highly beautiful, original images. He uses no digital effects or photographic manipulation, but shows us real elements of the natural world. The fascinating shapes, patterns, textures, and harmonious colors fill us with admiration and a sense of wonder. These photos stimulate our curiosity and refresh our way of looking at living, growing things.
