This gallery contains those works recently exhibited at the Longboat Key Art Center, Florida The overall theme for this exhibit was "Journeys in Fine Art". To that end, when selecting pieces for exhibiting, I chose photographs taken from both around the world as well as right here at home. It was my intent to showcase these "journeys" in a different light; not simply as a recounting of travels but instead as opportunities to explore and to interpret the world in a different way.
I present these images not as travel photography but, instead, as examples of artistically rendered pieces. Many of them are recognizable due to their content, many are not. However these images are more about design and less about content. In addition to showing a distinct sense of place they also are imbued with artistic principles which place them in the category of fine art.
It is my hope you enjoy viewing them as much as I did creating them.
