It can be argued that forests are one of the most important components in sustaining human life, and in the photo series 'Temporary Trees,' subjects were asked to evoke the feeling of nature. Artists Mkgk and Raw Color wanted to showcase trees as an ever-changing, living being.

They achieved the look of constant motion by multiple exposures of people throwing different objects into the air. The combination of the thrown objects with the movement of a person's hand created a tree-like look to the pictures. Also, having people represent the structure of the tree plays perfectly into Mkgk and Raw Color's message of how important humans are in the conservancy of our forests. The series 'Temporary Trees' is a fantastic representation of the delicacy of trees and is also stunning to look at.
