Description
In her series “Monster,” Beth Lilly photographs urban trees as a way to examine the human relationship with nature. The trees are thriving and have adapted themselves to the presence of power lines in the landscape, often resulting in bizarre forms. The title of the series refers both to these extreme and sometimes haunting shapes as well as to the society whose values have created them.
