Artist Lecture and Reception: Friday, October 16th, 6:00 – 8:00 p.m.
Robert Snow is a Central Florida based editorial and advertising photographer whose work spans multiple genres and styles: from editorial portraits and lifestyle spreads to action sports. In 2013, he took an assignment with OCEARCH, a non-profit organization dedicated to apex predator education and research, emphasizing shark migration patterns. Robert has since participated in 6 expeditions across the globe, from the United States to the Galapagos and Australia, documenting marine scientists at work, often in treacherous waters while in close proximity to some of the largest predators of the sea—risking their lives to better understand these mysterious beings in order to dispel myths and spread awareness as to the important role that sharks play in our global ecosystem.

In the 1970’s, the late photographer and educator Gary Metz generated a significant body of work that was very much in the spirit of the times. Metz’s Quaking Aspen: a Lyric Complaint challenged the first 100 years of landscape photography, which had placed a major emphasis on depicting nature as sublime, heroic, and unspoiled. Unlike previous photographers who glorified nature, Metz and his contemporaries wrenched photography out of the national parks and replaced the scenic with the vernacular of the everyday American landscape.
