"The Photography of Trees and Forests" with Maria Whiteman, Diane Cook, and Len Jenshel
Please join us for an evening of art and conversation around trees and forests with acclaimed photographers Maria Whiteman, Diane Cook, and Len Jenshel.

Maria Whiteman, “Into the Forest”

Photography, intermedia, and site-specific installation art are an integral part of visual artist Maria Whiteman’s practice. The past three years have taken her deeper into the woods, filming and photographing what it feels like to touch and breathe with fungi and trees. “Into the Forest” documents her studies of the woods in Indiana, sifting and evaluating the intertwining ecology between fungi, plants, and trees. Whiteman’s striking images capture the intricacies of interconnectedness between the fungal and arboreal worlds, where growth and decomposition take part in the symbiotic relationships of the forest’s wood wide web.

Diane Cook and Len Jenshel, “The Story of Wise Trees”

Photographers Diane Cook and Len Jenshel will tell the story of their book Wise Trees. This work documents over 50 remarkable trees from around the world, trees that have witnessed great moments in history, survived catastrophic events, and nurtured spiritual connections. Along with their stunning photographs, Cook and Jenshel will speak to the extraordinary stories these trees have to tell. At a time when the planet is losing 40 million trees a day, Wise Trees reconnects humanity with the enduring roles trees
