Art in Nature exhibit


Photo: Anolis by Becky Jaffe

One of my favorite nature photographers is Nick Brandt, who published the lush  compilation of black-and-white odes to African animals called On This Earth. When I heard that Nick Brandt would be the juror at the Center for Fine Art Photography’s Art in Nature exhibit, I jumped at the chance to have him review my work. I was twitterpated when he chose my photograph of a Hawaiian Anolis to be included in the exhibit, on display from October 21st through November 26th, 2011 in Fort Collins, Colorado.
