Presenter: David P. Bayles
Saturday, October 21 - 11:00AM to 11:50AM
In the mid-seventies David worked four years as a logger setting chokers, bumping knots and skinning cat in the Sierra Nevada mountains to earn money for photography school. A harrowing escape from a very large log rolling down a steep hill cemented a spiritual and physical relationship to trees and fueled a lifetime interest in the many ways in which we live with trees and forests.
David's presentation will weave together various photographic bodies of work with a personal narrative of experience, ideas, inspiration and some of the latest scientific research regarding the many ways in which trees are like people and forests are like family and community.
