John Murray Mason: Madison Trees


  • Lowell Center, University of Wisconsin Madison 702 Langdon St Madison, WI, 53706 United States (map)

John Murray Mason presents a personal photographic journey through four seasons and 15 years in an exhibit displaying the tranquility and bleak beauty of trees in black and white. Madison Trees, his collection of photographs features specimens found in the parks, gardens and natural areas, and along the city streets of Madison.

Many of the trees photographed stand near the edge of a body of water.  Some of the most interesting grow in parks along the city's lakes, rivers, and creeks. The photographer didn't need to travel far to find a good subject. The images show the many outposts of nature that punctuate Madison's neighborhoods.
