Join award-winning photographer Joe Standart for a program on photography of the natural world. Focusing on his own luminous photographs of Lyme landscapes, Standart will explain how site selection, composition, time of day, color and light influence his creative process. The presentation will also include landscape examples and highlights from his many years of experience photographing remote landscapes in other parts of the world. Standart began his career working for the National Park Service in Alaska, where he spent 2 years fording rivers, climbing mountains, and fighting off bears and mosquitoes, while documenting the last frontier.
Those who attend the talk will be invited to a walk guided by Joe Standart on Saturday, May 9 at 8:30 am, at a location to be announced. Standart will point out photogenic opportunities along the way and discuss how to set cameras to capture light, texture and composition in the natural world. He will give us insight into his creative process for expressing an artistic vision of nature through photography.
Joe Standart is a Lyme Land Trust board member and an internationally-known photographer well-known for his series of public art exhibits featuring monumental portraits of the diverse residents of New London, Litchfield, New Haven, Hartford and other communities. His provocative exhibit, WE ARE-A Nation of Immigrants was installed on the New Haven Green and surrounding buildings to act as a catalyst for honest dialog. For more about Joe Standart.
