tree circus

i discovered these through mieke willems' ffffound. Axel
Erlandson grew living trees to form ladders, towers, spiral
staircases, cathedral windows,.. 76 specimens in all at a post-war
roadside attraction outside the tourist town of Santa Cruz.
He died in 1964. Mark primack attempted to document those
trees on the eve of their destruction.
