Field Trip: New York Botanical Garden
Seeking inspiration for springtime photo shoots, our creative team recently took a field trip to a plant lover's landmark-- the New York Botanical Garden. Founded in 1891, the 250 acre plot in the Bronx is home to over 50 different gardens and plant collections, including the greenhouse specimens shown above. The highlight of our team's trip was exploring the Enid A. Haupt Conservatory, a Victorian glasshouse filled with gorgeous tropical varieties, towering palms, and rugged cacti. A delicate, white iron frame and abundant panes of glass make the space an airy retreat from the February chill. "It was wonderful to escape from the winter cold into the humidity of the conservatory," says Narrative Photographer Isa S. "I loved seeing how the wildness of the plants contrasted with the grandeur and elegance of the structure, and strolling down the pathways that connect the different climate spaces."
