Englands New Forest is one the oldest deciduous forests in the world. It was King Henrys hunting ground, and the famed oak trees were used in making many ships for the Royal Navy. Today farmers still have grazing rights in the forest, which gives the New Forest a unique personality. For example, the horses eat tree growth as high as they can reach and provide natural pruning. The woods feel open and mystical. This book is a re-mastering of previous photographic work by Richard Kraus. The original work was captured on large-format film, and has been re-scanned into a digital format and re-vitalized. Richard gained an international reputation from his work in the New Forest and published several decades of yearly calendars, as well as two coffee table book publications released by Constable Books of London. The titles were An English Forest and Portrait of a Forest. These publications have been out of print for nearly twenty years.
