Steve Eazarsky

July 1st through August 11th, 2012
Growing up and playing thirty three years in New England's backwoods Steve Eazarsky lives by an old Frank Lloyd Wright adage, "Study nature, love nature, stay close to nature. It will never fail you." Combining those elements with his trained eye, broad imagination and camera he artistically captures life on all scales; from clouds rolling over hills to a single blade of grass and to life on all levels. Landscape and light play is Steve's primary photographic medium, leaving Mother Nature to set the stage. His ability arriving right on time to capture these images is uncanny. A self-taught photographer his landscapes are reminiscent of Ansel Adams, but with a twist. Steve uses a modern Digital SLR. He does not manipulate any photo. John Muir sums up Steve's everyday mentality, "Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares drop off like autumn leaves." Raised in Watertown, Connecticut, Steve received a degree in chemistry in 2001. Having worked in the chemical industry has only spurred his advocacy of open spaces, wildlife refuges, and state and national parks. And he is very greatful for having so much beauty to experience, capture and share. Outside is where you will find him.
