Foster Gallery: Visual Arts Chair John Hirsch

Visual Arts Chair John Hirsch has published his first monograph, And Again: Photographs from the Harvard Forest. The book chronicles the research, scientists and ephemera of a 3,750-acre research forest in Petersham, Massachusetts. Essays by David Foster, Clarisse Hart and Margot Anne Kelley expand the scope of this photographic exploration at the nexus of science and art.

Published by Harvard University Press, this 136-page book has 70 photographs that explore both the quixotic and the beautiful. Hirsch says, "The body of work addresses a desire to understand, describe and predict the evolution of our surroundings, while showing reverence for the possibility of sublime moments in a place. The forest is here a microcosm for the world in which we live, and this work helps us to envision the future we may inhabit, making the book a useful and engaging vantage from which to consider pressing issues of climate change, ecosystem resilience, and land and water use."

A solo exhibition of works from And Again opened October 26 in Foster Gallery and will be on view until December 8.
