In his exhibit “Of trees and people – recovering a shared culture of forests”, Arnaud De Grave uses reportage-oriented photography to explore public perceptions of forest and landscape degradation and restoration.

Photographs are an effective medium to elicit thoughts and discussions around these issues by helping to contextualise conservation and landscape management concepts. Ethnographically-inspired photography focuses specifically on people in their environment, which personalises the science, gives local people a voice and bridges the gap between public perceptions and local realities. Participants in the symposium and the associated public events will be able to reflect upon, discuss, and question the stories and issues that lie behind the presented images.
