This black and white gelatin silver print is a variation of the same theme, Loxahatchee River. The incredible details of cypress trees with their exposed gnarled roots above the blackish water are captured with a large format camera - the artist favorite tool for his art. This print from a numbered edition of 7/100 is housed at the Aviation Administration Offices, and viewing is by appointment only.
"Wilderness to me is a spiritual necessity. When my son was killed by a drunk driver, it was to the wilderness that I fled in hope of regaining my serenity and equilibrium. The mysterious spiritual experience of being close to nature helped to restore my soul. It was during that time, I discovered the intimate beauty of Florida. My experience reinforced my sense of dedication to use my art form of photography as an inspiration for others to work together to save places of spiritual sanctuary for future generations."
