Urban Bonsai is an exploration of Singapore's trees in relation to the country's progress and urbanisation, where although the development of urban landscape is rapid, the trees in our garden city remain constant. Even so, our trees are systematically planted and then carefully pruned, much akin to maintaining bonsai.

Through digital manipulation of photographic elements, Singapore photographer Benny Loh creates scenes that are surreal to transport the viewers to another space – to dive into the mundane, and to explore man’s relationship with the natural and man-made environment.
