Photo Book About American Forests

American artist collects money to publish a book about the beauty and mysteriousness of the United States flora.

Winner of Kodak Materials grant, a photographer Anna Beeke launched a Kickstarter campaign campaign to collect funds to publish the book Sylvania. The book will include 60 images from a like-named series, which Beeke shot for two years in forests from Washington and Oregon to Vermont and Louisiana.

“My personal journey is inherent in the work, and I do hope that the book is transportive — conveying you to places you have never seen, places unknown to me before photographing them. The experience of Sylvania is both personal and universal, grounded in metaphor as well as reality, an appeal to the imagination but also a plea for the reverence of the forest in our increasingly urbanized world,” writes author.

Sylvania is a continuation of Anna Beeke’s thesis devoted to a study of the woods of the Pacific Northwest.

Beeke has collected $12,133 of the requested $28,000. Her campaign will last till December 18th, 2014.
