On until Sunday, 22 April 2018, The Victoria and Albert Museum present Trees in Photography, a display as party of their Into the Woods series to mar the 800th anniversary of the Charter of the Forest and the launch of the 2017 Charter for Trees, Woods and People. Including work by 40 photographers including Paul Strand, Robert Adams and Henri Cartier-Bresson, the display explores the ways in which trees have been displayed from the emergence of photography in the mid-19th century from botanical records to creative expression.

From the V&A Website:
Trees were among the first photographic subjects collected by this Museum as a learning resource for artists and designers. The V&A has continued to acquire photographs of trees in various contexts: within landscapes and forests, as lone subjects, in relationship to humans, in rural and urban settings, and as symbols of cultural significance.
