Fine Art Conservation Photographer, Phoenix

 

From the majesty and frailty of the Florida Everglades to the haunting beauty of Ireland, each fine art photograph by Phoenix inspires love and respect for our essential environment.  Her Solo Exhibition of 18 photographs will be displayed in the gallery inside Plunge Beach Resort’s lobby in Lauderdale-By-The-Sea.

 

 

“Loxahatchee Sunset” by Phoenix 

 

“With this exhibition we are inviting viewers to connect with the beauty and power captured in each of Phoenix’s art works,” said Joe Imbrogno, Director of Guest Excellence at the Plunge Beach Resort.  The exhibit includes several of Phoenix’s works taken during her Artist-In-Residence in Great Smoky Mountains Nation Park. They are being shown for the first time, since earlier exhibits they were juried into were cancelled due to COVID-19″.

 

 

“Dawn’s Early Light” by Phoenix 

 

Phoenix, who only goes by her first name, established a love of nature as a child during family vacations to national parks. Although, she taught film-making and photography early in her career she left them for some twenty years. Returning to photography in the digital age, she developed an exceptional talent and passion to help protect nature and wildlife. Today she is an internationally collected, award-winning conservation photographer.  Most recently a national hospital has acquired 22 large photographs measuring 24 x 36 inches each from Phoenix’s sacred trees, landscapes and winged life collections for their permanent collection.

 

 

“Red Leaf Tree Rich Mountain Road” by Phoenix 

 

 

“Phoenix is a legendary nature photographer and I have always been impressed with the quality of her work. Whether presenting a macro or wildlife photograph, or a long exposure shot of the Milky Way, Phoenix consistently delivers images that transmit beyond their compositions. I only have admiration for her, her work and her wisdom,” said Sophie Bonet, Lead Curator at ArtServe, one of the Plunge Beach Resort’s art partners.

“Before The Storm” by Phoenix

 

 

“Being a nature photographer is a mystical experience,” Phoenix tells The Rickie Report. “Like a meditation of light – color, texture, structure, pattern, and composition– it awakens an inner peace and knowingness.  With each image, it’s always my intent to raise awareness of endangered and threatened species and habitats that we stand to lose in the natural world if we are not careful. It is my desire that viewers are inspired to love, cherish and protect the fragile beauty and wonder that is nature as they reconnect with that inner peace reflected in each of my images.

 

 

 

“Blazing Sunset” by Phoenix

 

She continues, “For me, preserving nature and wilderness areas is not a luxury, but a necessity for the human spirit. In protecting the world’s nature and wildlife, the environment, we are really protecting the family of humanity. The importance of nature is more than a scientific necessity for creating air, clean water and producing food. It is a sacred necessity for healing and bringing peace to the human soul.”

“Dipped In Red” by Lara Chapman

 

Lara Chapman was looking for a better way to connect with her local community when she purchased a camera two years ago, and began visiting local parks and attractions.  She found a profound love for nature photography and poetry as seen through a camera lens.  Lara has since written hundreds of poems and taken thousands of photographs and created the “Poetry Picturebook Series”.  Her award winning photographs are on display throughout Palm Beach County and beyond.

 

“Red Hot Lowres” by Lara Chapman

 

 

Lara finds satisfaction in watching her work come to life and does most of her own printing and framing on archival fine art paper.  Her photography is a visual medium for showing the exquisite beauty of nature in the world.  Her work showcases the treasures of the planet boldly and without reservation.  Lara lives in West Palm Beach with her husband, two children, one dog and four cats.
