Entering a forest opens the gates to a magical world for everyone. At such times, many feel the need to record these unforgettable moments. When a forester enters a forest, he experiences it in a special way and visualizes forest life from a different perspective. The forest is not only a place of work, but the subject of his love and a way of life.
It is this love of the forest that inspired a group of Croatian foresters, enthusiasts, and forest lovers to express their admiration for the forests in this unique way through distinctive photographic images.
This exhibition, comprised of 65 photographs, reflects the multi-dimensional aspects of Croatian forest life as witnessed on a daily basis by local foresters and nature enthusiasts. Via artistic photographs, the exhibit strives to demonstrate the wealth of forests as an important natural resource for forest-related livelihoods, as well as the added value forests bring as a living environment for ecosystems existing within them.
¬Å“The Forest Through The Eye Of A Forester¬Â is currently on view through December 31 at the World Forestry Center Discovery Museum in Portland’s Washington Park.
