Coloratti Stephen Johnson‘s beautiful photographs of our Exquisite Earth are evidence of how seriously he takes his work. This is a brand new show of work made in the past 5 years. These gallery prints will debut on the evening of December 10. There will be a short lecture by Stephen at 8pm that evening that you won’t want to miss. Visit the Exquisite Earth webpage and see a short video of Stephen talking about the show, read more about it and see more of the images. This work is photographed on Canon DSLR equipment and is sponsored by Canon. The images range in location from Antarctica to Ireland to the western United States according to Stephen.
Stephen presents Exquisite Earth Preview Exhibition December 11, 2010 -February 28, 2011. Two events will mark the opening. On December 10 an opening reception will be held from 6pm – 10pm with a short lecture at 8pm. A Holiday Open House will be held on the following two days, December 11 and 12 from noon to 6pm.
You’ll also find information on his book “Stephen Johnson on Digital Photography” ready for holiday giving and enjoying. Bruce Fraser, author of Real World Camera Raw with Adobe Photoshop CS and Real World Color Management and Real World Adobe Photoshop CS says of the book, “Steve is arguably the first digital photographer–I vividly remember the day in January 1994 when he told me that he’d shot his last piece of film. In this sorely-needed book, Steve argues eloquently and passionately that digital photography is photography first, digital second, and places it in the wider context of photography’s history and evolution.”
