“Three Lindens” with Priscilla Rattazzi from the Peter Marino Art Foundation

Recorded January 25, 2024

Priscilla Rattazzi devoted over three decades to photographing three ancient linden trees that stood watch over her family home in East Hampton, NY. The project is an homage to a beloved property and the three trees that have watched over it for centuries, telling a story of dislocation, reverence for nature, self-awareness and ultimately, of resilience. The images from the book were exhibited at the Peter Marino Art Foundation in Southampton, New York (Summer 2023). Rattazzi studied photography at Sarah Lawrence College, worked as a fashion and portrait photographer in New York, and has shifted her focus to more personal subjects and most recently has shifted her focus to the environment with projects on endangered landscapes in Utah and ancient trees in Eastern Long Island.
