Review

"This book is beautiful, but it will also be useful to any gardener puzzled about what to add to her landscape. Currently on my wish list because of Lederman’s photographs are the sawtooth oak, the American fringe­tree and the little-leaf linden, a stalwart on city streets because it stands up so well to urban pollution — but whose beauty really emerges when it has room to spread. I was very taken with the handsomely burled Siberian elm, but my heart belongs to a senior white oak, photographed in winter, its graceful canopy arching over a rocky outcropping. If Lederman’s book doesn’t send you straight to the nursery, it should at least give you a good reason to visit the New York Botanical Garden, a national treasure nestled in the heart of the Bronx." —Dominique Browning, New York Times

"Shapes and colors are new, not like anything we have seen before.... Lederman has artfully documented his own communion with these creatures.... We can get lost in these photographs." —Garden Design magazine

"After spending time with the extraordinary photographs of Larry Lederman in Magnificent Trees of the New York Botanical Garden you will never look at a tree in the same way again. The pictures open your eye to every detail of form, color, texture of these mighty trees in all seasons. You will want to take walks in the winter just to see the sensuous trunks. One thing that grows more beautiful with age is the trunk of a tree and this book will make your walks in the garden or wherever there is a stand of trees ever so much more meaningful." —Bunny Williams

This is a book to savor and to make me plan a trip to the NY Botanical Garden. I'd love to be there for the blooming of the crab apples, the cherry trees, the azaleas, the magnolias, ... How lucky it must be to live in NYC and have this inspiring space nearby. I loved the photographer's five lessons. (1) His explanation of what makes the difference between a snapshot and a photograph is the best I've read. (2) Trees are hard to photograph. (3) The magic is in the light. (4) There is always a tension in the framing. (5) The familiar is best.

Today I'm going to our own park to photograph trees!

The photographer Larry Lederman writes in the introduction, "It was trees that brought me to photography, to be able to express
their beauty and my feeling for them. It is not that words failed. it is that too much must be said. "

His beautiful photographs remind me of the beauty and magic in nature, and to pick up my camera.
