Lance Oditt runs a fine art and documentary studio based in Seattle, Washington. He takes photographs to stir a deeper awareness for the possibilities of the natural world and a sense of stewardship towards it.

High in the Fish Lake Basin of Central Utah stands Pando, the world’s largest tree; an aspen-clone that spreads over 47 hectares of the Fishlake National Forest. Born of a single seed laid down some time in the last 12,000 years, Pando, whose name means ‘I spread’, wasn’t discovered until 1976.
