An 11-print folio of forest fire remains

"I stumbled across the remains of a forest fire in the ponderosa pines. The black bark of the still-vertical trunks seemed to me a testament to their resistance to the consuming flames. I was compelled to photograph them, drawn to the exquisite beauty in the simple tones. From a photographic point of view, they were glowing textures in my viewfinder.

"But as I photographed them, their sorrow seemed to unfold. I found myself more and more saddened by the story I began to feel in the charred remains." — Brooks Jensen
