White Tree

White Tree

Photographing this old tree in Spokane’s Finch Arboretum always makes a striking image.  It shows different faces from time of day to time of year. This infrared interpretation makes the tree seem as venerable in 2 dimensions as it is in 3.  I appreciate the versatility of this print even more for the number of diverse interiors it compliments; deeply colored, saturated walls contrast its starkness while it mirrors other more monochromatic, steely settings.  It has been a popular choice for its contrast – such a cold representation of what is obviously and ironically a warm subject.
