Tristan Chambers' photographs explore the interplay between agriculture, industry, and nature in rural and postindustrial settings, with a keen attention toward the temporal decay and evolution of plants, animals, and man made things. Employing a digital process, the artist uses traditional and contemporary techniques to produce fine art prints from unalloyed materials.
Rick Miller is an acclaimed photographer and an associate professor of art. He was an accomplished freelance news and editorial photographer for many years prior to becoming a full-time teacher.
Mr. Miller's work has been reviewed by Newsday, The New York Times and The Philadelphia Inquirer, among other notable media outlets.
Paul Hetzel decided to take up the craft of photography seriously while on a trek to Mt. Everest in 1994. He advanced from 35mm to medium format film in the late 1990s. The time constraints of his busy Medical Oncology practice prompted him to switch to the digital medium in 2005. He favors the creation of images in black and white, as he feels this medium best allows him to reproduce the mood, texture and form he sees in a particular situation, be it landscape, architecture or people.
