NEW ALBANY, Ind. – IU Southeast Chancellor Ray Wallace, an avid photographer for over forty years, will unveil his photography exhibit, “Yellowstone in Winter and Spring: a Photographic Journey,” at a public opening reception on Friday, Oct. 4, from 5:30 to 9 p.m. at Kleinhelter Gallery in New Albany.
The exhibit features 40 high-resolution digital images captured over two distinct seasons in the nation’s oldest, and most diverse, national park. Attendees can view his photographic journey through Yellowstone National Park and experience the wildlife and stunning landscapes he has “developed” through his lens. The exhibit will be on display through Oct. 31, and it is part of the 2019 Louisville Photo Biennial.
“I was enamored by the majesty at Yellowstone and loved photographing the animals and landscapes in both winter and spring,” said Wallace. “The scenery and wildlife in yellow stone are tremendously beautiful, no matter if I’m photographing in a minus 40-degree blizzard or a calm spring afternoon.”
Wallace focuses his pictorial work on travel, landscape and street/documentary photography. While he now works mostly with full-frame digital images, he still shoots 35mm and medium format images. His photographs of Northern Ireland, Eire, Scotland, England, Central Europe, South Africa, Vietnam, China, Thailand, Japan, India and the U.S. have been displayed in galleries across several countries.
