In Season: Landscapes from Patuxent National Wildlife Refuge

Landscapes from my solo exhibit, In Season: Landscape iPhoneography from Patuxent National Wildlife Refuge, at the Patuxent National Wildlife Refuge Visitors Center in December 2016.

Over the course of a year, I explored the Patuxent National Wildlife Refuge to observe how the weather and seasons change this landscape of marshes and woodlands. During my frequent visits, I hiked on the trails surrounding the Visitors Center and through the North Tract to get a fell and emotional temperature of this special place.

I photographed the landscapes in this exhibit using my iPhone exclusively. Using the iPhone gives me the ability to capture what I see unencumbered by a heavy camera. The images I capture are then processed and manipulated on my iPad to express my emotional response to the landscape. The work in this exhibit is not about capturing reality; but, creating a neo-Romantic world reflective of my imagination.
