Currently unavailable for purchase

Available to buy on…

My very first editing in a book…
When I did that image I thought about how menkind should be more united with the earth ,to feel renewed by the the contact of nature to become a better individuaL…MY DREAM … BECOME A FREE THINKER.As long as we are trying to control the earth nothing good will come out of it,I often thought that we should be more like trees who are the lungs of our beautiful planet.
Sometimes,trying new things gives something realy surprising…..experimenting is so much fun,you’ll never know what you’re gone get…. :))
The making of that image is so simple.I put the two pics together,one of a macro shot of bark without cropping and a portrait of my friend.I darked arround a little and that’s it.I didn’t have to do ajustment for the eye and the ear,it’s like the two pics were meant to fit together like we should make one with the earth.. :)))
