3 tree wrapping optical illusion photos

Cadair, Oak 2010

 Mr. Olsen says these are:
"An ongoing series of constructed photographs rooted in the forest."
In these real photos, by wrapping white fabric around tree trunks and taking a photo from a specific spot, Zander Olsen shifts our perspective. In the photo above, it took me a second to actually see the hills in the distance.

Jhutti 2004

For me, the photo above seems to flatten and become two distinct images, as if Mr. Olsen placed two separate images together.

Untitled (Cader) 2008

Here, the tree wrapping is more obvious. But stare a while longer, and see what happens.
