Despite its growth and all-too-familiar traffic woes, Atlanta’s metro area is rare among the world’s major cities because it still retains pieces of the region’s original forest. Kathryn Kolb will share her years of experience as an art photographer and Master Naturalist in her discussion of the nature and history of Atlanta’s urban forest, illustrating with her photographs the story of how Atlanta maintained its unusual status as a city in a forest.
Kathryn Kolb grew up in the rural countryside near Charlottesville, Virginia. After studying photography at The Southeastern Center for the Arts, she began work as a freelance photographer doing journalism and editorial work. She has been based in Atlanta since 1985. In the mid-1990’s, Kolb shifted her focus to fine art images of natural forms and landscapes. Kolb is currently the Executive Director of EcoAddendum, leading walks and outings in metro-Atlanta and the Southeast. She has over 30 years of field experience in the forests and wild land of our region.
