Do you ever get the feeling that you were born in the wrong time period in human history? Do you ever wish that maybe you had been born back in the 1800s or even better yet, in the future? I think I was born in the exact right time period for me; however, I have wondered what it would have been like if my life was tweaked by a decade or two.
I love that I was still a kid in the 80s because it was the time when the coolest video games ever made were released. The ’80s were truly magical. However, I also think about the 60s a lot. I bet that was an inspiring time to be a young adult. It seems like back then everything was happy, peaceful and loving. Life was full of flowers and friends. Maybe I’ve just been listening to too many John Lennon songs.
This recent photography installation called The Treehouse by Robert Holden reminds me of the 60s for some reason. According to Yatzer, “The stunning 40 photographs portray a harmonious lifestyle between people, nature and ourselves. It shows a commitment to life away from chaos, from monetization and found happiness carrying our existence where the highest value is not money or objects that define our status and class.” The large version of these photographs was available for viewing up until a few days ago, and they were part of the New York Photo Festival. You can see more of this collection by visiting Robert Holden. I want to live in a treehouse like this, even if just for a weekend.
