SAN DIEGO, CALIF – The Museum of Photographic Arts is featuring the works of photographer David Leaser at their San Diego location.

Leaser’s book, entitled Palm Trees: A Story in Photographs is a photographic monograph featuring palm trees from around the world. The book has received critical acclaim because of the richness of its photography. The Palm Journal writes, “David Leaser…has authored and produced what is arguably the most beautiful book ever written on palms….Even those not interested in palms will be attracted to this handsome book, want to pick it up, turn its pages, revel in its content, and be mesmerized by its photographs.”

National Gardener writes, “Much more than a publication for the casual reader, horticulturist or landscaper, this book is a work of art with its sumptuous photographs, quality paper, binding and handsome cover.” And the American Association of Botanical Gardens writes, “David Leaser, a longtime member of the International Palm Society, has authored an unusually attractive coffee-table picture book about palms. Palm Trees is worthy of conspicuous display in the home or office, and even those not interested in these unique plants will be attracted to this handsome book.”

Palm Trees: A Story in Photographs will be on display and available for purchase in the museum bookstore. The Museum of Photographic Arts mission is to inspire, educate and engage the broadest possible audience through the presentation, collection, and preservation of photography, film and video. Since its founding, the Museum of Photographic Arts (MoPA) has been devoted to collecting, conserving and exhibiting the entire spectrum of the photographic medium.

The Museum of Photographic Arts is accredited by the American Association of Museums and is a member-supported, private, non-profit institution.
