Many Happy Returns

Represented Artists, Yosemite Experiences

Photographic Meditations on Yosemite

The photograph is the record of modern life; it is both the art and vehicle, and in many ways the voice, which narrates and catalogs our being. They are something to share, but also something to receive. At their most truthful, they convey a harmony of place, autobiography and metaphor: where we are, who we are, what we believe in. They are a commencement and confirmation of a resolute meditation.

Opening on June 6th at The Ansel Adams Gallery, “Many Happy Returns: Photographic Meditations on Yosemite” will feature a variety of works which share stories of experience and intuition (and some luck) and reflection; of a long and continuing relationship that today reverberates as hopeful as ever.
