The trees always inspire me, the greenery soothes me. And that is why I love taking photographs of trees. I would like to share this love of mine for trees with everybody and this book is to instill this love in you and to inspire all to protect trees and environment.
I have created three series on trees--'Songs in the Praise of Trees', 'Aesthetic Beauty of Trees' and 'Many Facets of Life'. In this book all three series are included with some modifications, some images are left out and some new ones are added.
I believe my photographs are better than my words, but words also add, so I have taken help from the masters. Through out this book I used quotes of many famous people who loved trees.
Ismat Jahan is a professional photographer, graduated from New York Institute of Photography in Professional Photography. She is taking photographs for over twenty years; however, she is working as a professional photographer since 2001. Though she works as a portraiture and advertising photographer but nature photography is her passion. Specially, trees and leaves intrigue Ismat. Her first solo photography exhibition was held in October 2004. The theme of the exhibition was ‘Songs in Praise of Trees’. The entire exhibition was on trees, she expressed her appreciation of trees through images. In 2007, she held her second solo photography exhibition, titled ‘Aesthetic Beauty of Trees’. Ismat sees art in trees. She finds beauty in a particular part of a tree, in the shape of leaves, in tree trunks, in its structure or in the whole of the tree. She also participated in two group exhibitions. Ismat is also a contributor to Prakriti Photo Nature and Wildlife Magazine.
