"Jungles" is a personal exploration of nature in the tropics by master photographer, storyteller, and naturalist Frans Lanting. In a unique collection of images made over a period of 20 years in jungles from the lowlands of the Congo to the cloud forests of the Andes, Lanting interprets the aesthetic splendor and the remarkable natural history of the tropical rainforest - a realm of bewildering complexity where nothing is the way it first appears...MORE

In Brutal Kinship, Nichols, one of the most superb animal photographers working today, reveals the sometimes fine line between probing inquiry and mistreatment of these creatures, between the love and exploitation of them, in practices such as circuses, animal testing and “domestication.”...MORE

Howard Rubenstein
Nature's Unearthly Facts (A Way of Seeing)
Howard Rubenstein August 24 - October 16, 2005

“The canyon pieces take the viewer into a place that is in our world, but not of our world. We are in a photographic reality, in black-and-white, with illuminated forms that are both spatial and mysterious, full of convoluted contours that move from wave-like expanses to small light filled apertures. These forms were captured photographically on the Navajo Indian reservation in north central Arizona; the lower Antelope "slot" canyons. These narrow fissures formed by the erosion of flowing water over thousands of years are sixty to one hundred feet below the earth’s surface and six to ten feet wide, accessible only with an Indian guide.” – Howard Rubenstein...MORE

Blood and Honey
Ron Haviv September 16 - December 11, 2005

The Civil War and ethnic turmoil in Yugoslavia during the 1990’s are captured in Ron Haviv’s compelling and unique record of inhumanity in the heart of Europe. Blood and Honey shows us not only the major news events like the “ethnic-cleansing”, Serbian concentration camps, para-military atrocities and the destruction of ancient cities and culture, but he also gives us a glimpse into the lives of the ordinary people swept up in the chaos...MORE

Eudora Welty
Passionate Observer
Eudora Welty
November 11, 2005 - Jaunary 29, 2006

Eudora Welty is widely known as one of America’s great writers, but she was also a photographer of great skill and sensitivity. Her early use of photography left a profound impression on her writing, teaching her that "Life doesn't hold still," as she explained in One Writer's Beginnings. "Photography taught me that to be able to capture transience, by being ready to click the shutter at the crucial moment, was the greatest need I had." What Welty reveals in her photography is more than a record of the times; she captures the courage, dignity and spirit of ordinary people in their struggle with daily living conditions during an era of economic instability and personal uncertainty in the Depression...MORE
