Skin growth

The body is fertile ground for these photos.










Cranbrook, B.C.-based photographer Joel Robinson has released a series of pictures depicting trees, flowers and other assorted plant life bursting from people’s arms. Critiques of Robinson’s work say the photos are meant to illustrate the intimate connection between people and nature, although this bond looks like it might be painful for the people sprouting trees from their limbs. On his personal blog, Robinson says he’s inspired by¬†Annie Liebowitz, Tim Walker and Rodney Smith. We’re slightly unsettled by how the veins appear to function as roots.
