Wild or cultivated, rural or urban, solitary or within a forest, trees have long provided a compelling source of inspiration for artists and photographers alike. Both as stand-alone aesthetic objects and as symbols of broader cultural significance, trees have an understated, sometimes underappreciated, ability to evoke a deep, primal sense of wonder.

Whether captured as functional botanical records or as a means of creative expression, Into the Woods is an elegant, informative introduction to the ways in which distinctive patterns of branch, bark, leaf, and root have continued to offer arresting subjects for photographers across the centuries.

Including more than 100 photographs ranging from the nineteenth through the twenty-first century, supported by insightful commentaries and an introduction, Into the Woods illustrates the marvelous world of trees in photography.
