The last post, 8 Dec, was about the photos by Rajasthani students of their wildlands. This time it is about students of Southern Nevada photographing the beauty of their own wildlands. None of these photographs are mine. All are the work of southern Nevada participants in our 2016 STEAM Global_India. Just as with the Rajasthani students, their work shows an exceptional attention to detail, an amazing eye for color and composition, and a love and compassion for nature.
In the last post I said I couldn’t be prouder, but I guess I was wrong. Today I am now twice as proud, with superb students on two continents to admire.
Our international project has given students in southern Nevada a chance to explore and photograph their wild places and share the beauty and diversity of those lands with their counterparts in India. We are a group of southern Nevada refuge and park professionals, educators, artists, and student ambassadors that are working together with their peers in Panchla Siddha, India on related STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math) projects. This initiative is commited to arid land environmental educaton and dedicated to fostering an understanding between cultures of our shared responsibilies to our fragile planet.

I paint, photograph, and speak about wild places in an act of reciprocity that is as vital to me as heartbeat or breath.
My interest in the magic and mystery of the natural world lies at the intersection of art and science.
