A new group photography exhibit is set to open in October at the Annenberg Space for Photography in Los Angeles. The exhibit entitled, “Extreme Exposure,” will feature amazing photographs captured in some of the most remote and demanding places on the planet, by five of the most talented artists working in the field today.
The photographers who will have a number of their works on display include Clyde Butcher, whose “Swamplands” images make for an interesting study in light and shadow, while Michael “Nick” Nichols will present his “Lush Jungle” series of photos that focus on wildlife captured in their natural environments. They’re joined by Paul Nicklen, who will show stunning images from the Earth’s polar regions, and Donna and Stephen James O’Meara who specialize in shooting active volcanos and lava flows.
Additionally, the Annenberg Space will also feature a digital film presentation that will enhance the experience for visitors. The digital portion of the exhibit will offer hundreds more images, detailed profiles of the photographers, and insights on how they captured the images on display. In some cases they risked life and limb while dangling from a helicopter, battled the elements, or came face-to-face with some of the most dangerous animals on the planet, just to capture the perfect shot.
The exhibit is set to open on October 23, 2010 and will run through April 24, 2011, and for budding photographers or those who appreciate the art, it looks to be a fantastic display.
