Forest Floor: Urban Plant Life and Trash Photographed at Night

New York City-based photographer Michael Vahrenwald has been working on a new series of images taken throughout New York City from industrial to residential areas. The project titled "Forest Floor" depicts various weeds and plant life flourishing in the cracks of sidewalks, out of the sides of buildings and underneath infrastructure. Via his website, "The scenes are colored by the trash strewn about by passers by. These scenes are loosely modeled after the 17th century Dutch painter, botanist and entomologist Otto Marseus Van Schrieck. Known for his foreboding scenes of forest floors that include observations of animal life, plant life and decay. They are still lives depicting actual scenes from nature."
