A lonely bur oak in the middle of a Wisconsin cornfield became the subject of a year-long photography project during which Mark Hirsch made a picture of the tree every day. As he details in his story in the September 2015 edition of Guideposts, the quiet daily experience of photographing that oak tree proved a transformative healing experience for Hirsch, after he was nearly killed in an automobile accident in October of 2011. The resulting portfolio of images was published by Press Syndication Group as the book That Tree in October of 2013.
