Paul Octavious is a 21st century Renaissance man, creating art of all different kinds, each one charming and unique in its own way. Originally from Connecticut, Octavious currently resides in Chicago, and his work has been featured by The New York Times, The Huffington Post, and The New Yorker. Although he's a self-proclaimed photographer and designer, Ocatvious' work goes beyond any creative title or boundary.

One of his most recent works, titled Lean With It, features a variety of inclined trees accompanied by a set of expert "leaners," one photo even demanding an angle as low as 45 degrees! The playfulness from the subjects and the compositions of these photographs are truly refreshing. The similar positions of the trees, combined with the people leaning, are a nice play on the way that we interact with and imitate nature.
