Critically-acclaimed fine art photographer Ryan J. Bush, Ph.D. will sign copies of his book, "The Music of Trees", which includes three series of tree photographs, and three different ways of seeing, starting with relatively representational black & white photographs of trees, through abstraction to multiple exposure images, and color images about visionary consciousness.
Prints from various series of Bush's internationally-exhibited and museum-quality photography will be offered for sale (see https://www.ryanbushphotography.com
), along with greeting cards.
There will be an artist talk at 4pm, and light food and refreshments will be provided.
The event will be held on Saturday Jan 26th, from 3-5 pm at Fort Mason Center, Building C, Room 205.
"The influence of music on the work is strong, and the artist seeks to bring a musicality to the visuals. This intention is evident in the images’ palpable internal tempo. These photographs resound with beats of movement and stillness, always conveying the sense of something captured but not arrested. A book of great vision and continuity, The Music of Trees orchestrates a journey from the admiration of beauty to a place that vibrates with its own internal frequency." (from Foreword Reviews, Nov./Dec. 2018)
"There is a kaleidoscopic wonderment to these compositions, an invitation to use the images as a springboard into the recesses of one’s own mind. … These are pictures that invite us to notice what is around us, to be alive to the vividness of this world, and to recognize that our part in the grand symphony sounds best when we play well with others. A tree is grounded yet soaring, it is enduring yet flexible. It is irrevocably at one with its environment in a way that most of us have forgotten. Perhaps we can learn from the music of trees." (from the foreword by Katherine Ware, Curator of Photography, New Mexico Museum of Art)
