17th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Altered Images
Hanging by a thread

With this series, I wish to capture the fragile state of trees and forests in our modern world. Trees are the means through which our Earth breathes, yet it seems the order of the day is to exploit them until there is nothing left. In my image, Nature is, literally and figuratively, hanging by a thread.
