This past week, a new video has been circulating the blogosphere; I thought I’d share it here as well. The Lumiére Gallery in Atlanta opened a new show this week, “Messages from the Wilderness,” featuring the work of Philip Hyde, Robert Glenn Ketchum, Ansel Adams, Brett Weston, and Edward Weston.
The show, which is open through December 23, is a celebration of American Wilderness; the video I mentioned above has been highly publicized and features David Leland Hyde (of Landscape Photography Blogger) talking about his father’s work. I find it particularly moving to see these images, and realize how they not only impact us as photographers today, but as wilderness advocates, as citizens of this country. The images on display in “Messages from the Wilderness” shaped our nation as it is today–the art was truly serving a purpose.
I find that inspiring on many levels.
Incidentally, look for a David Leland Hyde as a guest blogger here at Alpenglow Images in the next few weeks.
