Arboretum of the Imagination
by Diane Kaye
About the Book
A 30 year retrospective of the magical “secret lives” of trees, freshly seen by the camera’s eye in a single un-manipulated frame, and printed as darkroom gelatin silver, alternative process lith or archival pigment.
Photographer Diane Kaye is internationally recognized for the quality of her work and she has exhibited widely and received numerous awards. Diane's background includes black and white darkroom printing, the use of both film and digital media, the “lith printing” technique, and digital negatives. She photographed the November 1989 beginning of the revolution at the Berlin Wall, developed large portfolios in landscape, nude, portraiture, and street photography and more recently performed experiments with motion, some of which involve the use of a scanner as camera. Her primary concerns in a fine print are: luminosity, compositional tension, mystery, and the visual expression of that which cannot be put into words.
