Joel Robinson's 'Put Your Hands Up' series orders the Canadian photographer's images of plant-human hybrids. Though Robinson is well-known for his surreal pictures of books and tea cups, he has now directed his focus towards the bodily form.

Outstretched arms give rise to green shrubs and dainty petals in Put Your Hands Up. Robinson has kept his signature style with notes of magic and romanticism despite his new focus, seen here in the flowing leaves, blossoming flowers and fingers which extend from below the earth.

There is an illusive quality about this collection. Wrist tattoos and the outline of wrinkles are the only hints given as far as identity goes. His subjects remain illusive, leading viewers to question who may be involved in this Robinson project.
