Beauty and the Beast: Nature Images
Description:
Beauty and the Beast: Nature Images August 18 - October 12, 2003 This exhibit features nineteen color and photogravure prints of New York-based photographer Barbara Yoshida, whose work has been shown throughout the world. Since 1996, six artist's residencies in National Parks, including Acadia National Park, have provided an opportunity for Ms. Yoshida to reexamine her relationship with nature. Her large-format images capture the diversity of landscape on the planet and the various forms of life that it supports, and reflect her conviction that the preservation of nature with a camera is inextricably linked to the preservation of various species and their habitats. In other words, the medium fits the message. Front: Jawbone, Lilies, and Maple. 14" x 11" Silver Gelatin Print. Courtesy of Barbara Yoshida [show more]
