Salt photographs of native plants found across the United States
On the heals of a two month motorcycle trip across the country to photograph native plants from 9 different eco-regions, Joshua Marowitz brings forth an exbition not to be missed.  Using the very first photographic process know as “salt” printing, the artist captures the exquisite, almost regal tone of these important botanical specimens by providing infinite detail and hand applied color to the image.
Check out this wonderful article from Audubon Magazine about the project. Marowitz also created a “kickstarter” campaign to help fund the initial cost as well as keeping a colorful blog of his journey while on the road.
Join us for an exhibition of art inspired by historic photography and bio-diversity conservation!
