Art Photographs FROM THERE TO HERE
Medium: Nature Photography
A lifelong interest in botanical environment has led Brian Valley to publish a series of photographs based on his personal experience in the environments of Hawaii and Vermont.
A native Vermonter, Valley spent 14 years living in the tropical state of Hawaii working as a naturalist, collecting seeds from native and endangered plants, propagating them and returning the seedlings to their natural habitat. Countless hours spent in the splendorous island landscape has inspired Valley to photograph and print some startling and beautiful images of an unseen Hawaii and native plants and flowers rescued from the brink of extinction.
From There to Here, a collection of limited edition prints, is a photographic journey honoring all that is wondrous in the landscapes of island and mountain paradises.
