David Halpern (1936 – ) has been making photographs for more than 65 years. For most of that time, Halpern’s work has been inspired by his love of nature and the American landscape. His favorite subjects are found in nature — landforms, water, rocks, trees, clouds — and the variables that alter our reactions to them — light, wind, rain, snow and fog. Despite being born too late to find and photograph any undiscovered wild places in America, Halpern has found great satisfaction in creating his own interpretations of the wonders that are all around us. The Essence of Place: Celebrating the Photography of David Halpern showcases a series of Halpern’s photographs depicting extraordinary landscapes in Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Texas and Utah.
