Portrait of trees is an ongoing project. The tree occupies in all the cultures of the world an important symbolism, physically, mentally and spiritually. Each variety of trees itself has its own symbolism. I wanted to remove the tree from its environment so I could look at it, admire it in its purest form, and allow it to reveal its character as in a portrait.

Patrick Desgraupes is a French photographer. He has trained on the job in different Parisian studios and in labs, in which he acquired an understanding of light, one of the strong traits of his current works. His work has been published since 2004 at Editions de la Martinière, in numerous magazines and brochures. He has become a recognized landscape specialist in the 4x5 inches large format camera and his work has been published in the USA and in seven European countries.
