featured artist... Daniel Elswit
My inspiration comes from the quiet places, from the serenity found in the wilds where nature abounds and where the trees and the rocks and the hills have their own stories to tell.
I'm also drawn to those ephemeral boundaries that exist between civilization and the wilderness, between past and present, where echoes of a bygone time still linger, overgrown and crumbling.
Interested in visual arts from an early age, I experimented with painting, drawing, and photography through college in the mid-1980s. Since that time, although I have pursued a career in IT support, I also work independently as a professional photographer.
I most commonly photograph the natural world but I've also engaged in photography in support of international outreach and environmental preservation, created portfolios for artists, done commercial photography, and mentored beginning photographic enthusiasts. I'm currently engaged in a multi-year project to create a book about the Appalachian Mountain range stretching from Alabama to Newfoundland. Learn more...
