Awe-inspiring aerial photos of tree farms

Gerco de Ruijter is a photographer based in the Netherlands. About this work, Baumschule, a series of tree farms in Boskoop and Kesteren, he writes: ‘A patchwork quilt of very different, neighboring agribusinesses separated only by a narrow road or a ditch. Here a bald, recently plowed field; there a piece of land full of holes dug for future trees. I found an enormous variety of visual elements. They show up not just because of the different seasons, but also through the stratification of the land. Trees, soil, holes. The combination of a tight grid and the camera’s central perspective results in a distinct depth, while on a cloudy day foreground and background may slide into each other’. [via Feature Shoot]
