Among Trees is a photographic journey that spans time and the continents. It is a sojourn in olive groves in Italy and palm trees on Rodeo Drive, a royal hunting forest in England and banyans on Maui, Louisiana live oak and Segovian pines, a hilltop shrouded in mist in China and a Christmas-lit tree on Madison Avenue.
Each extraordinary photograph conjures up all the expected and predictable pleasures of walking in the woods, the spiritual qualities of deep forests, the quiet rhythms of Nature, and our own connectedness with the basics of life. However, Among Trees is more than just a beautiful book. It is also an invitation to open up to the unexpected and the creative, and as we do so, to be somehow deepened or changed by it. Because this book is not simply about seeing pictures of interesting trees, it is about shifting our minds and awareness to experience the world and ourselves differently. For all the variety of trees, the book is really about the experience of being in among them.
