“The Poetry of Trees” series documents the similarities between humans and trees, particularly in their physical characteristics. The Ficus rubiginosa, through the intricacy of its branches and leaves, mirrors the tubular branch-like pattern in our lungs. Its trunk curiously resembles the muscular structure of the human form.

This series aims to awaken a new sense of awareness to visualize a different dimension in nature and the everyday.

To see trees in a new way is to see ourselves in a new way.
