Palm trees have become an icon of luxury and leisure. They invoke a feeling of carefree living and relaxation, and remind us that all things exist better elsewhere, whether it be the tropics, American west coast, or anywhere perpetually warm. Once a symbol of status in California landscaping, it is now commonplace to see the image of a palm tree just about anywhere, and in any context.
Issue 19 is a 20 page photo zine documenting just how pervasive the palm tree image is as it appears in signage, storefronts, pop culture, and more. Photos by Prashant Gopal.
