Marc Alcock is talented British photographer and graphic designer from Sheffield, who currently based in San Francisco, USA. Marc shoots a lot of landscape, urban and documentary photography. For his series “California Topiaries”, Marc captured stunning places with unique forms, colour and textures.
I love how people in California grow these living sculptures outside of their homes. This project documents homes around California where the character of the building is special because of a unique relationship with plants and nature.
At one end of the scale I found lovingly crafted topiaries, that were thoughtfully paired with architectural details. A conscious aesthetic decision. At the other end there are buildings swallowed by nature. The plants functioning as camouflage for the home.
