The work is part of Joerg Lohse's ongoing "Nature at Work" series, which captures unexpected juxtapositions of nature and the urban environment. Lohse's series of photographs crop their subjects much in the same way that the city encloses nature within manicured public gardens and parks. Nature is depicted as controlled, made accessible to a city's population. Plate glaass and an industrial vent frame a Chinese Elm, the well-kept tree itself a representation of mastery over the natural world. Landscape is both literally and figuratively interiorized; it is kept at a distance from park and garden visitors, made safe and unthreatening.

Joerg Lohse was born in Chemnitz (formerly Karl-Marx-Stadt, GDR), Germany. At age 19 he moved to Düsseldorf. After finishing his art education, he was assistant to Bernd and Hilla Becher for about 3 years before moving to New York in 2003.

His work has been exhibited in solo shows at Klinkhammer und Metzner Galerie, Düsseldorf; as well as various group shows internationally.
