Picture of Tree in Photographs
Publisher's Description
Visual artists as well as writers have long extolled the presence of the tree. From the origins of photography to the present day, photographers have considered the tree, with its strong graphic form and evocative power, to be a popular subject. Through the works of artists such as Robert Adams, Eugène Atget, Anne Brigman, William Eggleston, P. H. Emerson, Gustave Le Gray, Eliot Porter, Alfred Stieglitz, Paul Strand, William Henry Fox Talbot, and Carleton Watkins, this book spans the history of photography from the mid-nineteenth to early-twenty-first century to address the image of the tree in its many connotations—as graphic form, symbolic icon, and role model for the beauty of nature.

The selection of eighty-one images carefully culled from the J. Paul Getty Museum's permanent collection of photographs and reproduced in color presents the tree in various contexts: the single tree; trees in the urban landscape; uses of trees; tree reflections and shadows; and details, abstractions, and conceptual views of trees as conceived by contemporary artists.

Picture of Earthward
Publisher's Description
The Earthwards pictures started by chance, when Steve Pyke was watching a gardener at work with his garden fork, and was struck by its simple beauty. Photographed at Great Dixter in East Sussex, England – home of the late Christopher Lloyd – garden tools are presented here as a celebration of the way things wear and how, over time and with use, they become seemingly “rounder.” Some of these tools were those used in the actual creation of the gardens, which were mostly designed by Edwin Lutyens almost a century ago. Their handles and prongs are beautifully worn, perfectly in keeping with the hard work and dedication involved in the making of this universally admired landscape. So much of what we see in the workplace today is about distancing ourselves from the end result of our labors; these garden tools, although depicted on their own, against a pale backdrop, convey an intense sense of physical engagement. British-born Steve Pyke, now based in New York, has had a prolific and successful career working with many of the world’s leading magazines. Our third book with the artist, Earthwards is published to coincide with an exhibition of the work at Great Dixter in Winter 2008.
