Olmsted’s visionary landscape architecture through the lens of a leading photographer. Frederick Law Olmsted (1822–1903) is considered the father of landscape architecture in the United States for his creation of several renowned urban parks and park systems around the country. Whether in Central Park in New York, the Emerald Necklace in Boston, or the park systems of Chicago, Milwaukee, Buffalo, Rochester, and Louisville—trees are essential elements of all of Olmsted’s park designs. Through Stanley Greenberg’s stunning series of black and white photographs of the trees that date to the beginnings of these parks, this volume offers an intimate encounter with Olmsted, his motifs, and his heritage. Three essays by renowned experts on history, sociology, and landscape architecture complement the narrative and present an interdisciplinary vision of Olmsted’s achievement.
