The City Can't Stop Me
"The City Can't Stop Me" by Christopher Owen Nelson
Trees against a green color field
"Living through generation after generation of human life, trees become symbols of infinite wisdom, but they too are ephemeral beings in a much larger, more complex structure that has no set date of expiration, and is by no means permanent. My goal is for the viewer to feel as though they are looking at something fossilized or from another time, while addressing environmental topics such as deforestation, overpopulation and waste. Trees are one of the most effective protagonists of these issues, elegantly delivering a message of strength, endurance and hope."
