Cutting the Skyline

TITLE: Cutting the Skyline

AUTHOR: Cristiana Wilcoxon

CATEGORY: Space & Place


We are constantly manicuring our lawns and creating public spaces that allow nature to live so long as we maintain control. We are frightened of nature’s tendency towards what we perceive as disorder, so we prune branches and pull weeds. This is a photograph taken outside of Versailles where the trees have been cut so that they resemble a perfectly ordered line. They are not allowed to overtake the skyline.



Cristiana took her first photograph when she was eight and hasn’t put down a camera since. She writes and photographs for 7DeadlyMag, an Orange-County based online publication for the college academic. She enjoys improv comedy, blogging for, and reading Batman-related graphic novels.
