While writing can sweep us away to unknown places and expand our mind, art and photography can also bring us new understanding and clarity.
Trees: Between Earth and Heaven showcases photographs by Art Wolfe of different trees on six continents. A meditation on the importance of preserving our natural environment, Wolfe's photography also reminds us of the cycle of life, death, and rebirth that the natural world goes through, and our place in it all.
David Benjamin Sherry: American Monuments is a landscape photography project that captures the spirit and intrinsic value of America's threatened system of national monuments. American Monuments focuses on the areas under review by a 2017 executive order, with special emphasis on those that have already been decimated. Sherry documents these pristine, sacred and wildly diverse areas. The resulting 31 photographs--beautifully tipped in to the book by hand--not only convey the beauty of these important and ecologically diverse sites, but also shed light upon the plight of the perennially exploited landscape of the American West.
