Trees are essential to our well-being in so many ways. They produce oxygen and reduce carbon dioxide. They provide shelter and keep soil from eroding. We build our houses from them, read books printed on the paper they provide. And they nourish our hearts as beautiful elements of the landscape and metaphors for life.
We are honored that Sean Kernan served as juror for The Nature of Trees. A prolific photographer and videographer, writer, and award-winning workshop leader, Sean has published his work in a variety of magazines, including Smithsonian, Lenswork, and Communication Arts. In addition, he has produced seven books, incluing From Prison (2009), The Secret Books (1999) and About Trees (2003).
For this exhibition juror Sean Kernan chose forty photographs featuring trees in any form for exhibition at PhotoPlace Gallery. He also selectedan additional thirty-five photos for the Online Gallery. All selected work will be included in a full-color exhibition catalogue available for purchase. To help artists defray costs, PhotoPlace Gallery offers to mat and frame work selected for exhibition free of charge, providing artists print their images to our pre-cut mat and frame sizes.
