"The Ghost Tree of Inwood Park can be found down an unmarked footpath in Inwood Park in Manhattan. Many of New York City's largest parks have secrets and surprises and Inwood has no shortage of legends old and new. In the early months of 2010 the enormous oak tree fell in such a way that it appears like a phantom leaping from its own dark and hollowed depths. Even on a bright spring day the tree has a startling presence and I love imagining what stories would have emerged at such a formation if it had occurred 200 years ago. The photograph is from my landscape series Nowhere In Manhattan that documents the borough's remaining landscapes and non-spaces where the city is absent."

Matthew Jensen says that the phrase "conceptual landscape art" best describes his work. Landscape photography and rigorously built collections are a big component of his artistic process. Jensen's landscapes often develop into metaphors with recurring iconography, such as spruce trees, landscaped boulders, the sun, clouds, and blue skies. Spending a great deal of time in the landscape—walking and exploring—is essential to his process and often yields voluminous collections. Every Tree in Town, featured here, is a good example as the final series comprises 1,017 photographs.

Jensen's work The 49 States was recently acquired by the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Using Google "Street View," Jensen captured what he calls "expansive and beautiful nowheres" that, despite their separation from the hustle and flow of people and cities, are still touched by technology.Read Less
