James Balog, ‘Buttonwood Trees Diptych’, 2016, Hexton Gallery

Through a Florida horticulturist, James Balog learned of this tree hidden in a backyard a few blocks from the Atlantic Ocean. Generally found in aquatic habitats, this Mangrove was likely planted by a homeowner long ago.

“It seemed as if the image already existed and was just waiting for us to come along and record it.”
