Robert Moran says his frequent travels have afforded him “the opportunity to photograph new and unfamiliar places; to shoot the diverse features of the land, sea, and sky as I experience these landscapes with fresh eyes.”
A series of his photographs, H20 in the Landscape, is featured at The Griffin Museum at the Cambridge Homes, 360 Mount Auburn Street, Cambridge, March 12 through May 20. An opening reception is April 3, 6:30-7:30 p.m.
“One of my main goals is to capture the atmosphere, or essence of the subject I’m photographing,” Moran says. “Water is present in many forms in these photos. It’s a vital component in achieving the mood I’m trying to convey. Whether it be fog, clouds, mist, ice or waves, it’s the presence of H2O combined with the color and quality of light, that come together to fulfill my vision in producing these images.”
The landscapes are printed on metal.
“Metal prints represent a new medium for presenting photos by infusing dyes directly into specially coated aluminum sheets,” Moran explains. “The aluminum adds a luminescence to the image and creates a durable archival print without the use of glass.”
Moran graduated from the University of Maine with a fine arts degree in 1977. He continues to live in Maine and has a studio in Portland. He has exhibited widely in solo and group shows and his work has appeared in many publications.
The public is welcome to view the exhibit Monday through Sunday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Please check in with the receptionist.
