On August 20, 2019, the Lancaster Photography Association has the pleasure of having professional photographic artist Michael E. Gordon come and give a presentation that will feature images and stories from Death Valley National Park. The meeting will be held at 6:00 p.m. at Antelope Valley Senior Center, 777 W. Jackman Street, Lancaster, CA 93534.
Michael E. Gordon is an award-winning photographic artist best known for his black and white images from California’s deserts which, said Broughton Quarterly, portray “stunning ethereal beauty from terrain where others see only a bleak landscape.” A lifelong student of nature and wilderness, Michael’s intimate relationship with the natural world results in quiet images of depth and discovery.
Michael's work is held internationally in the private collections of the United States Embassy, Kaiser Permanente, Milken Family Foundation, The Wilderness Society, and many others. His photographs have been published in and on the covers of magazines, calendars, brochures, annual reports, textbooks, music CD’s, and newspapers, including B+W Photography (UK), SHOTS, Arte FotogrÃ¡fico, Backpacker, View Camera, Rangefinder, Broughton Quarterly, USDA Forest Service, Brooks/Cole, and more. Michael’s work has been awarded by the International Photography Awards, Prix de la Photographie Paris, and Black & White Spider Awards.
Michael owns and operates Death Valley Photo Tours, is co-founder of Visionary Photography Workshops, and leads workshops for The Los Angeles Center of Photography. He lives in Southern California with his wife Shauna.
