These tree captures by Robert Voit may look like real flora, but don't let them fool you.
These 'tree' photographs are a part of Voit's collection, entitled 'New Trees.' The poles are actually mobile phone masts that have been disguised as natural trees in places such as South Africa, United States, Great Britain, Korea, Portugal and Italy. These artificial trees are man-made structures that have been embellished to blend in with the natural surroundings. Nowadays, nature is being out grown by human structures, such as these telephone poles.
Robert Voit evokes the issue by bringing the 'trees' to people's attention. The phone poles are concealed with artificial trees ranging from cacti, deciduous, pines, conifers and palm trees.
