Nature Undisturbed on Ossabaw Island

Alligator, 2011

Palm Forest, 2011

I love photography events happening on the south side of Atlanta.  This week I am going to the open house for the Serenbe Photography Center, and I am participating in the Nature Undisturbed exhibit next month at Dogwood Gallery in Tyrone. DonnaRosser, who is also the director of Serenbe Photography Center, is the founder and administrator of this exhibit, which donates a portion of the proceeds to local conservation groups. Brett Abbott, the curator of photography at the High Museum, juried the exhibit, and I am honored that he selected 2 of my photographs.

I shot both of the photographs on Ossabaw Island. This island truly represents “nature undisturbed.” There are rarely more than a handful of people on the island, mostly artists and writers who come for inspiration and to create. The Ossabaw Island Foundation is a great steward of this resource. Georgia’s barrier islands make me proud to be a Georgian.
