Piece description from the artist
Super color infrared capture. This pine stump has been hidden for years under a blanket of sand. It was unearthed again this last year. It happened to coincide with the return of my newly converted super color infrared camera. It was only natural to want to create something unique.
Travis Forbear is a portrait photographer by trade, but works as a fine art photographer when ever the chance arrives. Using photographs taken in and around the areas he grew up, Travis blends imagination, childlike curiosity, and the occasional use of textures to create his art.
In 2010 one of Travis' photos, a close up of a snowflake, was featured in "Popular Photography":http://www.popphoto.com/gallery/friday-sep-10. Travis continues to live and work where only the best snowflakes can be found, in Hart, Michigan.
