I have not done a public exhibit since back in 1998 and it was mostly about wildlife photography. Back in the 1970’s and 1980’s I did several at various art centers, bank lobbies and others but retired from public life and dedicated just to roam the world in search of wildlife. I have visited about 100 countries but continue to return to a few. Travel photography has become a big business and there are very few places left to photograph, and the crowds spoil the landscapes and harass the wild animals. Below is the flyer for my exhibit opening 9/7/2018. For those that are unable to attend the work displayed is below the invitation postcard.
Description of Images.
1 and 2. These are shown first since they are the oldest ones. Photographed in April 2018 in the Cuevas de las Manos (Cave of the Hands) near the famous Route 40 in Patagonia, Argentina. They were created between 8-9000 years ago consisting mostly of hands stenciled on the cave walls by blowing the pigments with hollow bird bones. Most of the hands are left ones since the artist held the spraying pipe with the right one. I observed that the hands are more numerous close to the ground where the walls were more accessible to short people and diminish in numbers at the higher levels. Illustrations also include animals, hunters and geometric patterns. In Image 1 there is a hand with 6 fingers; can you find it?
