The artist has skirted the edges of several large Asian cities documenting trees and plants that receive unnatural light from these urban areas. Some of the images have been left untouched while others have been digitally manipulated in post production with fantastic results.

Despite the futuristic allure exhibited in these works, Bialobrzeski clearly has environmental concerns. This work should be applauded for the reminder that without continued effort to change, this planet may be facing a dismal end.
