After buying photographs for some time, we realized we were often drawn to pictures of trees. The last one we bought was at the Paris Lumas gallery in the Marais and is a fascinating work by San-Francisco-based Spanish photographer Pep Ventosa, entitled Central Park Four. It consists in the overlay of several photos of the same tree taken while walking in a circle around it. We like the depth and transparency this gives to the picture, the rich and subtle texture, the warm and light colours, the vibrancy and airiness of the whole. A portrait of a tree with life going on around it.
