“During this project there were several moments of awareness of being in the same place I had visited more than twenty years before, but looking at the same thing with different eyes. These photographs are about discovering, rediscovering and the sheer joy of seeing. I found in this exploration a deep sense of renewal.”

Michael Eastman / The Forgotten Forest 1992


“Here, in the park, earth, air, light, and water meet – the ancient elements – and in these photographs, appearances mingle with realities, the stream of time is stopped; now there is nowhere for the world to hide, the fugitive has been caught…”

William H Gass / The Photo, The Forest, and The Park 1992


In 1986 Forest Park Forever, the privately funded citizen group, embarked on the restoration of Forest Park in St. Louis. the park had fallen into disrepair. In 1992 Michael Eastman, one of the world’s most important contemporary photographers, published “The Forgotten Forest,” a collection of photographs documenting the deteriorating park and its beautiful decline.  In 2022 we published four of those images in grand scale.

At 1300 acres it is one of the largest public parks in America, bigger than Central Park, the setting for the 1904 Worlds Fair in celebration if the Louisiana Purchase and Summer Olympics, where the great institutions of St.Louis still stand – the world famous St. Louis Zoo, The St. Louis Art Museum, The Missouri History Museum, The Municipal Opera, Boathouse, Athletic Fields, Public Golf Courses and more. 13,000,000 people visit the park annually.
