“The question is not what you look at, but what you see."— Henry David Thoreau

When I was a kid, someone once told me that,”the difference between something and nothing is everything.” Of course, they were just teasing an eight-year old boy with a zen-like statement, but since then I’ve often considered the philosophical impact of that assertion. Somewhere between what we see and what we don’t see—lie the possibilities.

The Munich-based photographer, Robert Voit, series “New Trees” plays with these possibilities and asks us to consider what’s real, unreal, and an everyday part of our lives. Voit, who studied at the prestigious Arts Academy in Dusseldorf, Germany, knows all about the “Becher School” of photography. His photographs, however, play with typologies rather than being boxed-in as such. Voit is merely asking us to look closely, pay attention, and smile along the way. Our world has changed and these “new trees” reflect the landscape of our 21st Century planet.

Voit’s exhibition, “New Trees” and “The Alphabet of New Plants,” opens tomorrow at Clamp Art here in NYC. His monograph, “New Trees,” is now available from Steidl. I look forward to attending the show and seeing the possibilites.—Lane Nevares
