The Transplanting Reality; Transforming Nature photo series by artist Ellen Jantzen is a striking collection of replica foliage that has been transplanted into real-life locations.

The photos feature the artist's signature style, with each capture being slightly blurry and featuring a hazy overlay that skews the subject just enough to make it appear transcendent and whimsical -- without losing the element of realism.

Each tree that has been implanted into the natural setting of the photo's background is either a stark white or an embossed metallic. Acting as a reminder of how Earth looked before the age of industrialization, the series displays how the landscape has changed with the advancement of humans.

The photographer's inspiration for this series stemmed from the quintessentially important role that trees and forests play in the lives of human kind and how the depletion of these woody marvels will impact the future. Stats for Displaced Timberland Photos Trending: Older & Warm
