Peter Fetterman Gallery is pleased to present an exhibition of works by American fine art landscape photographer, Jeffrey Conley. He crafts each one of his prints by utilizing two traditional darkroom methods, gelatin silver and platinum/palladium printing processes. As both the artist and the printer, Conley’s first-hand technique creates a compendium of work that is as wide-ranging as it is intricate and intimate. The artist has, moreover, perfected the balance between simplicity and complexity, nuanced and bold.

“For as long as I can remember I have felt most at peace outdoors. Nature has always been my refuge and sanctuary. I find the natural world to be endlessly wondrous in its range of character and texture, from moments of delicate intimacy and subtlety to the massively expansive and powerful. Nature is in constant change, and photography is particularly well suited to capture and amplify the swirling fluidity and the wonderfully serendipitous moments born of the ephemeral. Photographing nature is a very specific kind of exercise in mindfulness; to be out in nature with senses responsive, keenly aware of circumstances and completely receptive, yielding to the present. The photographs in this exhibition represent some of my observations while investigating nature over these last several years; moments that represent my awe, wonder, and affinity towards our Earth.” ~Jeffrey Conley, 2017.

Actually to call him a travel photographer is something of a misnomer, as Chris works across travel related genres such as lifestyle, adventure, wildlife and natural history with equal aplomb. The fact that all of these necessitate travel – because his clients and shoot locatons are spread all over the globe – is perhaps the strongest link. In this feature, we’ve chosen to focus on his lifestyle and adventure imagery.

Jon Kolkin is known for his minimalist style, stripping away all distractions and focusing on the sole of his subject matter. Like many artists before him, Jon has had a love affair with both the arts and the sciences. He was first introduced to photography as a young boy working in his father’s darkroom. He expanded his artistic horizons, becoming a nationally recognized clarinetist who toured Europe with the National Youth Symphony.
These passions, combined with his fascination with the sciences, resulted in Jon’s decision to pursue a major in chemistry at Emory University with a minor in the Arts. After college he received a degree in Medicine and has been a practicing Hand Surgeon for over 29 years. However, he never abandoned his love for the arts, taking photography courses at night while simultaneously completing his residency in Orthopedics. Jon has found novel & unique ways of combining his dual passions. He travels around the world as a medical volunteer while simultaneously working on photographic projects. Jon serves on the faculty of the Maine Media (Photographic) Workshops and is a frequent lecturer on the topic of using photography as a tool for achieving personal growth.
His captivating images have won numerous awards and have drawn the attention of private collectors throughout the United States and abroad. His work is also included in corporate & museum collections as diverse as the Ritz Carlton, the Carter Center for International Peace, Emory University, the Maine Museum of Photographic Art and Bank of America. Jon’s artwork has also been featured in numerous solo & group exhibitions around the country and in prominent photography magazines such as B&W, Color and Camera Arts.
WATER features Canadian artist Edward Burtynsky’s exploration of humanity’s increasingly stressed relationship with the world’s most vital natural resource. Between 2007 and 2012, Burtynsky travelled the globe, from the Gulf of Mexico to the shores of the Ganges, crafting an ambitious representation of water’s increasingly fragmented lifecycle. In enormous, color prints Burtynsky’s aerial images trace the various roles that water plays in modern life—as a source of healthy ecosystems and energy, as a key element in cultural and religious rituals, and as a rapidly depleting resource. Sometimes elegant, sometimes haunting, the abstract pictures hover between the worlds of painting and photography, forming a compelling global portrait of water that functions as an open-ended question about humanity’s past, present, and future relationship with the natural world.

Liquid Mountains by Dave Sandford Dave Sandford, who is best known for his sports photography, spent October to December capturing images of the waves of Lake Erie. Each photo shows an eerie immensity and power that can be found on the lake. The series is called “Liquid Mountains”, which is an accurate description for the waves that come in the surprisingly shallow lake.
