Have you ever seen a tree smile? Or witnessed a cloud take a certain shape on purpose? We don't think of the elements of nature; trees, rocks, clouds, etc. as being able to express and communicate. Photographer Shann Guest asserts that nature attempts to communicate with us every day -- she even has the photographs to prove it in Messages from the Lorax . From figures emerging from trees, rock formations that show a face, to fairies in the webs of spiders, her images demonstrate nature's remarkable ability to mimic images familiar to us all. 159 photographs in full colour.
Shannon Guest grew up in Kentucky and started searching for the higher aspects of life while living in New York, where she had moved after graduating from college. Her quest to explore these higher aspects, and particularly to see what is unseen, has inspired her photography and painting. The mother of two lives in Cincinnati.
