The Tree in Photographs
by Françoise Reynaud

This book spans the history of photography from the mid-nineteenth to early-twenty-first century to address the image of the tree in its many connotations—as graphic form, symbolic icon, and role model for the beauty of nature. Published as a companion to the exhibition of In Focus: The Tree, at the J. Paul Getty Museum, The Tree in Photographs includes 81 plates, all selected from the Getty’s collection of photographs. The exhibit celebrates the tree as a symbol of life that reveals various artistic responses to the perennial subject.

The Arnold Arboretum’s own collections of tree photographs can be found by searching VIA or viewing one of the library’s online photo exhibits.

The Tree in Photographs is included on our New Books List for June 27th, 2011.
