sacred

Trees are the world’s oldest living beings. Their majestic beauty is a spiritual connection to an earth that sustains us physically and emotionally. BARKED founder and architect Robert Ouellette travels the globe photographing the rarest of these ancient treasures to preserve their legacy. The bark of every tree tells the story of its life. Collectively, the images document the fragile legacy of nature in an age of massive social and environmental change.

The bark images are made using advanced photographic tools. Where possible, the entire girth of a tree is captured in sections. The high-definition results are digitally stitched together to make seamless images. In a noisy, frantic world these works return us to a quieter, pre-modern age.

The barked images and related artifacts are available in a number of different forms. Supporters of our mission can visit the barked shop for T-shirts, posters, cards, and other special items. Fine-Art collectors and institutions interested in carrying our work can contact us for more information.
