Heather Woods Broderick & Benjamin Swett   

April 28 ‒ June 22, 2017

Planthouse’s latest fine art book project, Home Winds, unites the photography of Benjamin Swett with the soulful music of singer and songwriter Heather Woods Broderick in an elegant call to environmental awareness. The publication, which includes a foreword by Elleree Erdos, was born of a desire to support environmental causes. In that spirit, proceeds from the release of the song Home Winds will benefit institutions devoted to fighting climate change.

Benjamin Swett (b. 1959) is a writer and photographer whose books combining photographs and text include Route 22 and New York City of Trees, which won the New York City Book Award for Photography. He is the author and photographer of guidebooks to the Hudson Valley and to New York City's Great Trees, and collaborated with the singer/songwriter Heather Woods Broderick to produce the collaborative book/CD of tree photographs and songs Home Winds. A writer and photographer of the New York City Parks Department for thirteen years, Swett founded the Parks in Print program, which produced books, brochures, maps, and guides New York City's lesser-known parks. His photographs are in private, corporate, and public collections including the Museum of the City of New York.
