Gund’s series, “The Persistent Nature of Nature,” features large-scale images taken in Sao Paolo, Brazil; the photographs include intriguing plants, flowers, massive tree-root systems, and other tropical flora impinging on man-made buildings and structures in the urban ecosphere.
Gund’s latest installment of digital photographs in the “Persistent Nature of Nature” series presents images of tree root systems and limbs actively destroying the man-made world, juxtaposing scenes of more delicate plants and flowers living in a peaceful existence without our urban environments.
