    About Bryan Whitney

    During the onset of Covid I was quarantined in a house deep in the Catskill mountains and my passion was to go for walks in the forest every day. I took my camera along and began to discover the amazing variety and expressiveness of the trees and how they appeared in the different seasons. My approach in capturing these enchanted trees was abstract, symbolic and anthropomorphic. I used a very special circular fisheye lens mounted onto a 102 megapixel camera which changes the perspective of the image and objects dramatically, creating a dramatically new vision of nature. Its circularity recall wholeness, unity and eternity. At the
    same time, many of the trees became strong characters, defined by their experiences in sometimes brutal conditions. One can reflect on how these trees often contorted shapes show a resilience and even beauty and how this relates to the human condition. My appreciation for the value of nature has been greatly enhanced by these many walks I made in the forest and my understanding of the importance of preserving nature from the devastation of climate change has become ever stronger. I have continuing with this work in 2021 by photographing in the burned forests in Colorado, hoping with my artwork I can contribute to bringing greater awareness of the danger posed to our natural environment.
