During last weekend's New York Photo Festival a collective of tree fort-dwellers arrived on the walls, roofs and scaffolding in Dumbo, a public installation of a series by Paris-based photographer Robert Holden. The images of nearly-nude commune members and lush jungle vegetation mark a sharp contrast gainst the prime post-industrial architecture.
On his website, Holden describes the subjects of his Treehouse series as:
People who choose to live differently and manage to find happiness and satisfaction by carrying an existence where the highest values are not monetizable.
Here's a handy neighborhood map of the places where those two extreme environments meet. Treehouse will be on view throughout Dumbo through May 31.
