Life in Death

Photographer's Statement:

In this picture, one sees a new tree growing in an old dead one. That’s always been an interesting concept for me. That life can grow from death. Seeing this tree, and how it grows from things that came before it, urges me to be my best, liveliest self. Whether that’s learning from many who came before me or going back to a place full of life (nature), I can grow from the influence of the beauty that surrounds me.
