A selection of Art’s photos taken in the Big Sur / Monterey, California area.
Kenmore Camera invited to me to present my Between Heaven and Earth show at a Canon-sponsored event at the Lynnwood, WA Convention Center north of Seattle. I had a great time meeting people. The room was SRO and the response gratifyingly boisterous. The show chronicles how I started with photography in the North Cascades, and how my involvement with a 1984 expedition to the Tibetan side of Mt Everest led to a life-long obsession with the Himalaya. I’ve returned to Tibet, visited Nepal, explored Bhutan, trekked up the Baltoro Glacier of Pakistan, and wandered in northern India. No other part of the world, with the exception of the Pacific Northwest, has influenced my life and work as deeply.
My inspiration for Travels to the Edge:
Great photography doesn’t just happen by luck…and sometimes involves more work than the final product would indicate. In this video I talk about one of my favorite photographs, the Night Fisherman, and how it came together.
