ABOUT THE PHOTOGRAPHER

Brian Kelley moved to New York City in 2006 and received his BFA in photography from the School of Visual Arts. Kelley employs a mixedmedia approach — exhaustive research, slow and meditative composition, and the repurposing of photographic mediums — to reveal the artifacts of our predecessors. Kelley set off in May on what he figures may be a 10-year odyssey to photograph every one of American Forests’ Champion Trees — more than 700 of them — in large format. Kelley was born in Horseheads, N.Y., and currently lives in Brooklyn.
