I Photograph Myself Naked With Trees To Show That We Are Nature
My name is TreeGirl and I love trees. I have spent the last twenty years photographing myself intertwined with some of the world’s most amazing trees. As an arborist and artist, I research and travel to each of the trees, spending anywhere from a few minutes to hours naked in wild nature to create a great shot using a remote-control timer and a tripod.

The aim of my photographs, in which I am sometimes almost camouflaged, is to create beautiful images to remind us that we are nature. My work is an invitation for people to reconnect with nature as a healing resource amidst the madness of our civilized world.
