Winter is just around the corner and as always its most visible in the trees – the autumn colors are fading and branches are looking a bit sparse. Now two design studios have teamed up to present these eternal transformations by reimagining trees in an inspired and vibrant form. As part of the international ‘Make A Forest’ exhibition, Raw Color and MKGK have created a series of long exposure photographs in which people become these ‘Temporary Trees’ through movement and a variety of props.

Presented during Dutch Design Week in Eindhoven, the series depicts the magic of trees and represent the constant flux of a forest. Colorful shapes become beautiful tree figures, and demonstrate the seasonal changes trees experience throughout the year.
