Prospectus: "The artist has photographed the boreal forests of northern Minnesota for more than a decade. In this portfolio Amidst Trees she draws on her love of Japanese screens and the seasonal cycles by creating two photographic accordion-fold books, Boreal Forest, November and Borreal Forest, May. Voices from the literary world - lines from poems by Robert Frost, Emily Dickinson, Dante, Paul Gruchow, Wendell Berry, and Jane Kenyon - expand thoughts about trees. A personal essay about the artist's connection to trees and forests is included in the portfolio."
