Camouflaged Cell Phone Towers

Even though people increasingly depend upon cellular communications, they are opposed to the bare cell phone towers spoiling otherwise scenic views. Many people view bare towers as an ugly mark on a beautiful landscape. So many companies disguise their cell phone towers as trees, church towers, flag poles, water tanks and other features. These are generally called "stealth towers" or "stealth installations".

For seven years photographer Robert Voit has been photographing these artificial trees around various parts of the world such as Britain, US and South Africa. Often these structures are outlandish and disproportionate, yet a lot a them blend surprisingly well with the surroundings.
