I’ve been thinking about how to photograph trees for many years. However, I agree with a painter friend of mine that they are the most difficult sujet of all. Too obviously beautiful. But I’m drawn to essential subjects. And trees are one of the most essential subjects I can think of. The tree series started as a side project for the blog this past summer. By now I have about 20 samples from my new territory, the northern, wilder parts of Central Park, and I just put them on my website alongside my more advanced projects, here. It’s work in progress, but I’m quite happy with it.
