“Smoke Bath is a collection of photographs and art work loosely based on the theme of camping, nature, and exploring. The goal of Smoke Bath is to showcase the work of artists that are inspired by nature and raise money for freshair.org in the process. The Fresh Air Fund is an independent, not-for-profit agency that provides free summer vacations to New York City children from low-income communities.” – from the publisher
Curated by New York-based photographer Peter Sutherland, Smoke Bath cast a wide net, gathering contributions from over 100 young artists and photographers in an effort to bring attention to the importance of nature.
“I hope the images collected here inspire people to think about the beauty of the wilderness, and perhaps inspire them to donate to freshair.org. Visiting natural and wilderness areas can be a very peaceful and mind-expanding experience. Hopefully this project helps kids to discover the outdoors. Thanks to all of the artists who contributed to Smoke Bath!” – Peter Sutherland
