Scenes and Vistas from the American East and West

There is a distinct difference between the rocks, streams, soil, flowers, skies and even the very light found in both the eastern Atlantic wilderness regions and those found in western Colorado. When photographs of these disparate regions are compared, these elements seem like they belong in different worlds. Charles Dexter’s presentation will contrast colors, textures, shapes and spaces existing in America’s East and West! Charles is inspired by the photographic traditions of the Sierra Club and his art history classes. He is self-trained as a photographer. His weekends are spent searching for new vistas, waterfalls and special places from the Catskills to the Delaware Water Gap. Charles is also passionate about photographing in Colorado. He leads NYC Sierra Club Photo Committee photo outings to many of the places he loves and exhibits in all the Photo Committee group shows. His two solo photography shows include Natural Abstracts at Berkeley College in NYC and Natural Visions: From the Hudson Valley to the American West, at the Greenbrook Sanctuary in NJ, where he has conducted photo outings and workshops.
