Please note that we take environmental issues serious: for all tree-paintings shown here we use natural and biodegradable colors that will fade away after a while.
In this series, French photographer Laurent Chehere invites us to dream and imagine what it would be like if houses were flying. “Flying Houses” represents a mix of Chehere shooting various structures and creating them in Photoshop.
