"New Trees"

I was flipping through a recent issue of Condé Nast Traveler (is anyone else getting subscriptions to all kinds of weird magazines now all our favorite ones are closing?) and came across these photos of "new trees" by photographer Robert Voit. Every once in a while Derek will point out a cell phone tower disguising itself as a piece of the natural landscape while we are out driving, and I find them so interesting. The evergreen "tree" with the streetlights coming out of its trunk is my all time favorite. A new book from Steidl comes out at the end of the month, and there is currently a show of this work up at the Amador Gallery in New York.

I always liked those trees. Emily in LA just posted a series she's done in her portfolio - http://www.emilyshur.com/nature-calls/
