Dear Friends,

I recently read a book called Images of America: Bedford-Stuyvesant by Wilhemena Rhodes Kelly.  This book paired wonderful archival images with a rich history about Bed-Stuy. 

I learned that a famous magnolia tree planted in 1890 is still located on Lafayette Avenue in Bed-Stuy. This tree was described as "rare and hardened." I really liked this description and wanted to find other "rare" trees. I thought it would be interesting to classify the types of trees growing on the street that I live on. With a pocket guide handy, I spent one windy October day taking pictures of trees and collecting data. I selected trees based on there uniqueness in type and look.

The Tree On Quincy Street is a series of photographs that documents tree types located on Quincy Street in Bed-Stuy.  An audio recording is paired with each photo that describes the data I collected while photographing these trees in October 2009.

Sincerely,

Jen Goya
