G2 Gallery - Designed Environment Exhibit

ABOUT THE EXHIBIT

Apophenia is the human tendency to perceive and assign meaning to patterns in our environment. The G2 Gallery’s current group exhibit, Designed Environment, features photography that highlights architectural forms, geometric sequences, and symmetrical patterns found in nature.

Subjects can range from a rock formation with an undulating shape resembling a famous building, to a fern with leaves following the Fibonacci sequence.
This exhibit aims to reveal order from apparent chaos.

My image "Antarctic Ice Block" is in the show! The exhibit runs from October 12 - December 23, 2017.

Proceeds from the sales benefit their partner non-profit organization -- the California Native Plant Society & Theodore Payne Foundation.

Featured Images in New Educational Book!

2017 Africa Geographic Photographer of the Year Awards

My image of Chapman's Baobab is one of

Africa Geographic's

Photographer of the Year 2017 Winners!

 

"Chapman’s baobab is named after James Chapman (1831-1872) who was an explorer of Southern Africa and came across this vast baobab on July 10, 1852 while traversing the Makgadikgadi Salt Pans. This is an iconic tree that David Livingstone and Frederick Selous camped under during their explorations, and one of the three largest baobabs in Africa. I got an opportunity to capture this tree under moonless skies as a long exposure with stars trailing through it. Sadly, on the 7th of January, 2016, it fell to the ground. This tree holds a special place in Africa’s amazing history."
