Disturbing the Harmony

Ellen Jantzen

2014

Trees teach us about belonging; they remind us that life doesn't need permission to prevail. Trees are sanctuaries. If we listen closely, we can learn the ancient law of life. They are seen as powerful symbols of growth, decay and resurrection.

They have played a prominent role in many folktales and legends and have been given deep and sacred meanings.

But, a tree's longevity can lull us into a false sense of immortality.

It is this very impermanence that I long to understand through my photographic explorations. There is an ineffable natural beauty.... too great to be expressed or described in words

In this series I am using imagery to convey my "feelings" about the state of nature, the nature of trees, and how to express their connection to past, present and future. By obscuring a portion of the image through a veil, I strive to heighten the remaining reality through discovery and reflection.
