Women in Trees

Edited with text by Jochen Raiss.

"Delightful Vintage Photos Of Women In Trees Are What You Need Right Now: Jochen Raiss has been collecting these quirky scenes for years." - The Huffington Post

“You know, I don’t know how one can walk by a tree and not be happy at the sight of it?” writes Fyodor Dostoyevsky in The Idiot. Perhaps this sentence might explain the subject of women in trees that was so popular between the 1920s and ‘50s and has until now never before been assembled in a book. The enthusiastic collector Jochen Raiss discovered this motif during his flea market excursions. These photographs feature young women at dizzying heights who, at times, smile into the camera as if they were in love. The publication assembles the finds from this charming genre that Raiss compiled over a period of 25 years. Whether the women are cheerfully dangling their legs, casually nestling in the branch forks or athletically climbing to the treetop, each picture has its own story to tell.

PRAISE AND REVIEWS

Hyperallergic

Thomas Voon

It all began at a flea market in Frankfurt, when photo collector Jochen Raiß came across a picture of a woman wearing a summer dress and high heels. While she looked ready for a Sunday stroll, her delicate footwear was odd for what her photographer caught her in the midst of doing: climbing a tree….he has since amassed 91 such photographs, now collected in an endearing photo book simply titled Women in Trees

The deceptive simplicity of Women in Trees

The deceptive simplicity of Women in Trees

Women in Trees, a lovely little collection of some 50 vintage amateur photographs of, well, women in trees, is a true gem. Charming, endearing, and full of life, this diminutive volume provides a happy glimpse into forgotten moments from the past. What exactly these moments are is not always easy to determine, but the sincerity with which the women pose in their trees makes the activity feel like the most natural theme in the world.

Women in Trees

BACK IN STOCK! Staff favorite Women in Trees is just a bit smaller than a 5x7 postcard, and a scant 112 pages, but this quirky little book is exactly what it says it is, and exactly what it needs to be: a collection of 55 vintage, black-and-white flea market photographs of sassy, dreamy, sexy and smily young women posing privately for some long-forgotten photographer. This is a book that will make anyone smile, rightfully reviewed in AnOther, Hyperallergic and The Huffington Post, among others. continue to blog
