About the artist
Donald Buma has worked in public gardens and parks
that have ranged from Cape Cod National Seashore in the East to Botanica the
Wichita Gardens, Kansas, in the West.
His employment has also included being Horticulturist at Longwood
Gardens, Pennsylvania. He recently
retired as Executive Director of Norfolk Botanical Garden in Virginia. Buma has
also had the opportunity to visit many other gardens and natural areas across
the country. In all instances the
visits were enjoyable and a pleasure for the senses. Using photography to capture some of those often fleeting
experiences was the natural outgrowth of his desire to record and later share
those glimpses of the beauty of creation.
It is his hope that that those observing his photographs find pleasure
in viewing them and making a visual, and perhaps even emotional, connection
with the intricacies, elegance and beauty of plants, gardens and nature.
