Photographer's Statement:

When I look to the forest, I see Life. There are many things that come with life, the main ones being birth, growth, and death. In life there are happy and sad things. At the first we have birth, next we grow into beautiful beings, and sadly at last we have death. When I look to the forest I see Life, and life and death is beautiful.
