This intimate presentation of twelve photographic prints by Duncan Whitaker is the second in Evergreen Museum & Library's ongoing series of exhibition that focus on artists who discovered their artistic talents after the fulfillment of other careers.
As a successful corporate lawyer, Whitaker worked within an office environment for nearly forty years. Upon retirement his focus, literally and figuratively, became the outdoors. A loyalist when it comes to film over digital technology, he masterfully celebrates color and texture, while uniquely capturing a feeling of welcome solitude in his landscapes and botanicals. His still-life images convey an equally comforting sense of peace and contentment—a beautiful complement to the familiar Garrett libraries that serve as this exhibition's backdrop.
