Nature Revisited – Statement from the Show
Photography strengthens and deepens my relationship with nature. Rather than a piece of equipment that acts as a barrier, the camera functions as a magnifier, enabling me to notice detail and to frame beauty. This is true with the camera in the field, as well as during the processing of captured images on the computer. In processing, I have a second chance to find what I have missed. Then with the final product — in print or on the computer screen — I visit anew. My hope is that these images will also give you a chance to visit anew, and to connect more deeply with nature. I am thrilled to exhibit through the Conservation Foundation of the Gulf Coast, as I see my work in perfect alignment with the CFGC’s mission of preserving and bringing attention to our wild places, along with their flora and fauna.
