In the Wild
Exhibit Dates July 11-August 6th 2010
Reception July 16th 6-8PM

As today’s wildlife faces unprecedented challenges, the wildlife photographer has the opportunity to act as chronicler as well as advocate.  With extreme patience and dedication photographers have the ability to present images of such striking natural beauty that they have been able to influence lawmaking and future human behavior. Many have dedicated their lives to this.  All in the power of an image…

From insects to big game, from songbirds to salamanders, we are looking for your photographs, taken anywhere in the world, of wildlife in their habitat.

"When evaluating a series of photographic images I am looking for a sense of a shared experience through the beauty and composition of the subject. Lighting is extremely important and can make or break an image. To hold the attention of the viewer the image needs to be technically correct, that is correctly exposed with the important details such as eyes being sharp. All these various criteria can come together to create an image with the quality of a masterpiece in oil."
