3D Projections on Trees by Clément Briend

Paris-based photographer Clément Briend created these haunting digital projections on trees, placing them on the streets of Paris and Cambodia.

Cambodian Trees

“Cambodian culture is deeply rooted in a spirituality – marked by a belief in genii and fantasy creatures. In a dark cityscape, night reveals the presence of divine creatures on trees and subsequently makes them alive and real. Such nocturnal visions allow us to grasp the way magic profoundly influences how Cambodian people perceive the world.”

“I use optical projections to create images in reality.”

“I always wanted to photograph the world without it being too faithful to what it is.”

"It’s a beautiful surprise when the projected spirits awaken and reveal themselves at night as though they are made of the towering trees themselves. The photographic light installations echo the spirituality of the few sprouts of nature in the predominantly urban landscapes. It is a visual imagining of the divine figures that inhabit the world, as seen through an environmentally aware spiritual eye."
