Shot in autumn or spring, in full bloom or barren of leaves, the series Trees by Italian photographer Manuelo Bececco is a good reminder for us to always look up, because nature reveals its beauty from all angles.

Each image in the project stands for a personal sentiment or milestone in the photographer’s life. Bececco manipulates light and perspective to capture a certain mood and ambiance. Often shooting from below, he accommodates both the big picture and tiny details of the forest, from textured tree trunks to pinpricks of light shining through the gaps between leaves. 

“In the middle of the woods, I seem to see everything in my own way – giant trees or branches that form barriers, irises of the eyes,” he says with an interview with Modern Met. “These are things that I only see in my mind and that I can sometimes turn into photographs.”

When he isn’t basking in the beauty of landscape, Bececco indulges in reportage, wedding and travel photography. More of his work on his website and Instagram.
