Trees are the world’s oldest sentient beings. Their majestic beauty is a spiritual connection to the earth. They sustain us physically and emotionally. BARKED founder 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 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.
