April 11 – May 31: Desert Foothills Land Trust Photography Exhibit on Display
Over the last 18 months, photographer Jerry Sieve has been using traditional photography techniques to photograph Desert Foothills Land Trust preserves in order to highlight these natural resources. Capturing unique topography, primitive drawings and interesting land formations on film using long exposures, selective focus and other approaches, Sieve has expressed the intrinsic value of the work Desert Foothills Land Trust is doing though his art.
These works, all selenium-toned and honed in a dark room, will be on display at the Desert Foothills Library, 38443 N. Schoolhouse Road in Cave Creek, April 11 – May 31.
Jerry is a well-known photographer in Arizona, having been published in Arizona Highways, National Wildlife Federation magazine, Sierra Club magazine, and National Geographic. He has published five stunning books of photographs, and has exhibited widely at galleries and shows across the United States. He is a popular instructor at the high school and college level, and has led photography classes throughout the U.S. He has also been a volunteer judge of the Desert Foothills Land Trust Black Mountain Photo Contest, and has contributed photos to support the land trust’s conservation work for many years.
“We are fortunate to have artists like Jerry who can help us share our story of land conservation, and to celebrate the community’s love of land,” says Desert Foothills Land Trust Executive Director Sonia Perillo. “We are also fortunate to have business partners like BMO Private Bank, who have generously sponsored this exhibition for all of us to enjoy.”
