MORRISTOWN, NJ, November 26, 2014 / - National award-winning fine art photographer Danielle Austen of Hillsborough will have a reception for her exhibit “Kenai Peaks” on Friday, December 5 from 6-8 pm at Fox Rothschild LLP on 15 Maple Ave. The exhibit is part of Art Around the Park, an alternative venue art walk in Morristown conceived by Simon Gallery.
Austen’s images were created while exploring the Kenai Peninsula in Alaska in 2012. Throughout her journey, it was her goal to capture the spirit of these mountains, investigating the clouds and the light as they moved over the peaks.
“It is easy to get lost in the beauty of the majestic vistas, but I believe it is the elements that make up these scenes that are of the greatest value. Nature can create stunning abstract imagery through the interplay of light, pattern, color, and movement. The effects can be surreal, and even ethereal. I believe these images can be pathways into the unexpected depth of the natural world.
As a documentary fine artist trained both in photojournalism and in the fine arts, I am bound to seek honesty in my subjects and to communicate the spirituality of the moment. I focus on documenting intimate portraits and unexpected views of the landscape… and to tell their story. I search for what many may see as ordinary and discover the extraordinary.”
The exhibit will be on display through the end of the year.
