Wooded bliss, the beauty of trees.

Yoko Ikeda and Toshio Shibata both photograph nature – but from very different viewpoints. Their striking, breathtaking landscapes collide in the new exhibition Treescapes.

Salem, Massachusetts, 2013
Born in Kanazawa in central Japan in 1965, Yoko Ikeda now lives and works in Tokyo. Treescapes, from which these images are taken, is at the Laurence Miller Gallery, New York.
