Rock Forms, Salt Point, CA
From landscapes to architectural shoots, with color or Black and White, Huntington Witherill has mastered the use of light and form. In a current exhibit at the Verve Gallery in New Mexico you can see this virtuoso at work.
Having studied photography in the early 1970’s with such notables as Ansel Adams, Wynn Bullock, Steve Crouch and Al Weber, Witherill has remained faithful to his classical photographic training while progressively transitioning toward a more contemporary approach to the medium. Since 1970, his work has been featured in more than one-hundred individual and group exhibitions in museums and galleries throughout the world.
Indicative of a diverse approach to the medium, Witherill works in both color and black & white, and his subjects include landscapes, studies of pop-art, botanical still-life, urban architecture, abstracts, and digital imaging. His black & white photographs have been published in two award winning hardcover monographs titled: Orchestrating Icons (2000) and Botanical Dances (2002). Both books were published by LensWork Publishing. In 1999, Witherill was recipient of the "Artist of the Year" award presented by the Center for Photographic Art, Carmel, CA.
Now through January 8, 2011.
