Solo Single Subject exhibition at the Espaço Espelho d'Água
May 25, 2020
Exhibition Opening, Espaco Espelho d'Agua Gallery, Lisbon, Portugal
Starting today, my Dead Vlei Tree photography is part of the Solo Single Subject exhibition at the Espaço Espelho d'água in Lisbon, Portugal from May 22 through June 10th. With social distancing measures in place, ESPACO ESPELHO D’AGUA Gallery will soon communicate further information on how you can safely visit this exhibition.
Among the towering orange dunes of Namib-Naukluft National Park is an area known as Dead Vlei. In the Dead Vlei, you will find the tallest dunes in the world. The rich orange dunes that surround the area owe their hue to age, the sand has literally rusted. The blue sky, orange dunes, white pans, and scorched black trees create an alien landscape. The trees, now over 1000 years old, form a barren forest. As I gazed through my lens, the earth beneath me hummed. I captured each tree as if they were dancers preforming on a magnificent stage.
