The Trees Amongst Us

Nicola Woods

Inspired by LEAF’s Adopt-a-Street-Tree project in the Junction neighbourhood of Toronto, The Trees Amongst Us is a series of photographs mounted on metal leaf depicting the street trees throughout the seasons. To highlight individual trees and the challenging conditions they face, Woods transposes the trees and their concrete encasements to an environment of embellished, radiant metal leaf. The exhibition aims to increase awareness of the benefits trees provide and to encourage support of LEAF’s Adopt-a-Street-Tree project.
