Lean With It: People Photographed Leaning at Impossible Angles with Trees

July 10, 2012

Christopher Jobson

Chicago photographer Paul Octavious has just released a number of new photos as part of his Lean With It series, where he captures people bending (I suspect falling) in parallel with precariously angled trees. It’s almost more amazing that he’s able to find these trees in the first place, let alone timing such great shots. See much more on his website.

Stillness in Motion is a sculpture by Cleveland-based artist Olga Ziemska that was installed in 2003 at the Centre of Polish Sculpture in Oronsko, Poland. The piece is made entirely from cut willow branches that have been cut and stacked to create a human figure. (via junk culture)

Tree People on the Streets of Uruguay

April 10, 2012

Christopher Jobson

These are the first photographs of a collaboration between Pablo S. Herrero and David de la Mano in Montevideo, Uruguay. My guess is that David was responsible for painting the figurative pieces while Pablo filled them in with his signature trees. (via street art utopia)

Bonsai Tree Houses by Takanori Aiba

February 14, 2012

Christopher Jobson

For nearly a decade since the late 1970s artist Takanori Aiba worked as a maze illustrator for Japanese fashion magazine POPYE. The following decade he worked as an architect and finally in 2003 decided to merge the two crafts—the design of physical space and the drawing of labyrinths—into these incredibly detailed tiny worlds. Using craft paper, plastic, plaster, acrylic resin, paint and other materials Aiba constructs sprawling miniature communities that wrap around bonsai trees, lighthouses, and amongst the cliffs of nearly vertical islands. I would love to visit every single one of these places, if only I was 6 feet shorter. See more of Aiba’s work here.
