Larry Lederman’s photography in Magnificent Trees of the New York Botanical Garden is a visual tribute to trees. A member of the Board of Advisers at The New York Botanical Garden, a well-known attorney, and an adjunct professor to New York Law School, Lederman has been photographing landscapes for the past ten years capturing the details of their form, color and texture. His work has been exhibited at The New York Botanical Garden’s Ross Gallery, the Four Seasons Restaurant in New York City, and Olana, the home of painter Frederic Edwin Church, in addition to inclusion in private and corporate collections.
Larry Lederman’s stunning photographs of The New York Botanical Garden’s 30,000 tree-specimens, are complimented by the vivid descriptions of Todd Forrest, Vice President for Horticulture and Living Collections at the Garden. For Lederman and Forrest, each tree has a story to tell. "People don’t even notice trees, but they have stature and personality. They’re alive," Lederman says, "They have good days and bad days, good years and bad years."
