Robert Llewellyn has been photographing trees and landscapes for more than forty years. His photographs have been featured in major art exhibits, and more than thirty books featuring his photography are in print, including Seeing Flowers and Seeing Trees. His book Washington: The Capital was an official diplomatic gift of the White House and State Department, and Remarkable Trees of Virginia, the culmination of his four-year project photographing trees, has been called “a spectacular tribute to Virginia’s native trees.”
