Inspired by the wild places of the Colorado Plateau, two photographers have combined their talents to create a vibrant exhibit of photography. “Visions of the American West” is a collection of images on display in the Bighorn Gallery at the Dead Horse Point State Park visitor center through August 30th.
Edge is a nature and adventure photographer who “appreciates the intimate details in nature” that are often overlooked. Edge’s images have appeared worldwide in books, magazines, calendars, ad campaigns and tourism publications. He enjoys teaching others to become better photographers through workshops and guided excursions. He lives and recreates in Moab with his wife, son and two all-terrain pugs.
Tal chose nature photography as a way of “capturing and sharing the beauty, power and fragility of wild places.” His photographs are visual expressions that aim to “inspire without venturing outside the realm of the believable”. His photography and technical expertise are shared in his books and he is a contributor to Nature Photographers Online Magazine. Tal is a professional photographer, writer and guide living in Torrey, Utah.
During the photography exhibit at Dead Horse Point State Park, Edge and Tal’s images are available for purchase, as are their prints. For more information about the artists, visit www.bretedge.com and www.guytal.com
