The photo is from a series of photographs on mid-century modern architecture in the California Desert. To emphasize the tree, I chose to shoot at night, lit and photographed all parts of the tree seperately and stitched all the images together again. I’m trying to create simplicity out of chaos. Busy subjects are transformed into clean, graphic images, which are anything but empty. To give my images a feeling of atmosphere, light and depth, I use a wide range of techniques and styles.
