One Year, One Tree

John Knoppers's avatar John Knoppers

My exhibit consists of 9 photographs of a tree near my home. My project was to take photographs of this tree over the course of a year, showing its beauty and strength in different seasons, weather conditions, and time of day. The photographs are arranged to roughly represent the shape of a leaf, with a long midrib up the middle and the smaller photographs representing the blade and veins. Trees provide many benefits: • Providing a cooling effect in the summer. • Acting as a wind break in the winter. • Absorbing carbon dioxide and providing oxygen. • Increasing property values. • Improving water quality by reducing runoff and erosion. • Providing beauty all around us. What trees do you see around you? What value are they bringing to you? "And all the trees of the field shall know that I am the Lord." Ezekiel 17:24a
