Event: Photoville 2022 / Nature Nurtures exhibit
Location: Brooklyn Bridge Park  Brooklyn, New York
Dates: June 4-26, 2022
Curators: Elizabeth Krist and Sarah Leen

Nature Nurtures may be seen as a free-standing exhibition in Brooklyn Bridge Park during Photoville 2022, June 4-26. The exhibit features the work of 12 photographers who have documented how nature inspires and sustains them, brings solace to others, and is a powerful antidote to the stresses of contemporary life.

"During the isolation of the pandemic, it became clear to many that nature held a cure. Humans have recognized the healing effects of nature for centuries. In Japan, the government studied the therapeutic benefits of immersing ourselves in nature, which they called shinrin-yoku, or 'forest bathing.' Research has shown that regular exposure to nature can lower blood pressure, cortisol levels, anxiety, and can strengthen the immune system."
