Swedish photographer Hasse Linden recently shot a series of overexposed trees and foliage titled 'In The Forest.' Each frame depicts a blurry cornucopia of trees, overlapping upon one another to produce a decidedly disorienting effect.

Forests, especially those without trails, are notoriously difficult to lose one's bearings in. There are few distinct landmarks, and it can become difficult to keep track of where one is and where one is going. Hasse Linden breathlessly captures this lost feeling in his series. The blurry, faded effect only enhances this sensation. Despite their common theme, the photographs are actually quite varied.

Every frame in the series portrays a similar forest scene, yet each photograph emphasizes a different color and texture than its counterparts.
