A Portrait of a Tree
For the past five years, Adrian Houston has travelled the world photographing trees that hold a special meaning for a diverse cross section of people.
These images - and the stories behind them - have now been collated into Adrian’s rst exhibition for Unit London, A Portrait of the Tree.
The stories behind the chosen subjects are as important as the images themselves. Together they offer a powerful tool to help educate us about the vital role trees play - and the devastating impact that tree disease could have not only on our environment, but on our lives.
A percentage of all sales will go to two leading charities: Future Trees Trust, a national charity dedicated to improving disease resilience, growth rate, form and adaptability to climate change of broadleaved trees, and Trees for Cities. Together with the latter, A Portrait of the Tree is running in parallel with a London-wide education programme, partnering with 25 primary and secondary schools where pupils may not typically have access to green spaces and art exhibitions.
