"How strange that grass should sing - Grass is so still a thing" wrote the poet Gwendolyn Bennett. Though still and fragile, a leaf of grass has a song with the power to sunder rock and concrete.

Nathan Dean, a Tennessee native with a PhD in physics from Cambridge University in England, traveled the world during a distinguished career in academe, visiting - and photographing - in more than eighty countries.
