Man has been destroying the environment for centuries. If this continues then we will be left with a world without trees. The world will be a concrete jungle. This series explores the destruction of the natural environment and the building of a landscape where nature is replaced by a solitary tree as a symbol of what was. A solitary figure mourns the destruction of the natural environment.

I live in Melbourne, the capital city of the state of Victoria in Australia - the land down under. I used to work in IT and electronic engineering but I now play around fulltime with photography and travel. My main areas of interest are in landscapes, cityscapes, seascapes and street photography. I occasionally dabble in other areas when the opportunity arises. My other interest is in creative or fine art photography.
