Contemporary Landscape Photography Guided Conversation

July 23, 2014 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm

Free

We must look for a long time before we can see. – Henry David Thoreau

Photographers often push themselves to look at the world in new and different ways which leads them to interesting expressions of what they see. Contemporary landscape photography has evolved from the earliest pristine photographs from the likes of Ansel Adams that reflected a world untouched by humans, to current artists interpreting urban landscapes, and everything in between.

On Wednesday, July 23 from 5-6:30 pm, photographer Barbara Bosworth, our 2014 artist in residence, and Margot Kelley will lead a guided conversation about contemporary landscape photography. Margot and Rob Kelley will host 15 participants at their beautiful seaside home in Port Clyde. Call 594-5166 to reserve your spot.

Bosworth focuses on landscape photography and is particularly interested in the interrelatedness of man and the natural environment. Subdued and nuanced, her work often reveals the sacredness of the land and the effects of human encroachment. Her keen observation has also captured many quiet moments in nature, through images of Yellowstone National Park, Niagara Falls, and the National Champion trees of Ohio, among others.
