"Majestic Moments" - landscape and wildlife photographs
September 28 - October 30, 2015
"Hey Boo Boo" - photograph by Erica Harvey
This photography exhibit features 21 landscape and
wildlife images taken at national parks around the country as well as in Canada.
Harvey’s use of rich color and subtle
light give her images a stillness that allows the photograph to reveal itself
slowly as it tells the story of our national parks.
“The images you see today are not
only beautiful works of art, but some of my favorite moments. Together they
convey my greatest passion in life: traveling and seeing the world. Oddly
enough a map - my grandparent’s map to be exact, instilled this passion! As a
small child I would go into their basement and stare at this world map that was
full of pins. Each one of those pins represented an adventure, a life fully
lived. I swore to myself that one day I would have my own map and fill it
with my own pins. This collection of images is representative of some of what I
see when I look at my own map. Instead of pins I see moments in time. Each pin
in my map has a story to tell.”
Harvey grew up in the Black Hills. She attended the Brooks
Institute of Photography in Santa Barbara where she earned a degree in Visual
Journalism. For the last 10 years she has run her own photography business in
Rapid City and currently she is working towards her goal of teaching others.
