Lignes Verte by Alexandra Davy, a photographer based in France, is a photo series capturing hedges that tend to surround houses both for decorative and protective purposes. Yet she manages to capture them in as artistic a way as possible. The houses appear to be peeking over the hedges while the images overall adhere to an abstract and minimal style.

Through Lignes Verte by Alexandra Davy, the photographer addresses the contradictory existence of such hedges. She writes, "Plants are a part of nature, but walls are a part of culture. They provide us with an artificial protection from the eyes of the world. Inside, they conceal what we're hiding; outside, what we'd like to see." This protection is more appealing than white picket fences.
