Transplanting Reality; Transcending Nature


Originally from St. Louis, Ellen Jantzen does not consider herself a photographer, but more of an image-maker. Ellen’s work bridges the gap between photography, print and collage. Ellen says of the series Transplanting Reality; Transcending Nature, “I am transplanting replica trees into the natural world then creating ethereal forms that blend with and supplant the natural environment. One is artificial, the other a spirit form; both represent the transcendence of nature.”

Experience the spirit form with Ellen's stunning shots…
