“Sage Spirit - The Future of the American West” by Dave Showalter shows exclusively at the Denver Photo Art Gallery, June 7- July 27
Dave Showalter, a Fellow Photographer of the International League of Conservation Photographers (www.ilcp.com,)
Showalter’s on-going project, which also includes a book scheduled for release in 2014, was created he says, “to inspire and educate about the remarkable sagebrush lands that are the heart of the American West, while showing impacts where industrialized energy development has fragmented habitat in one of the most imperiled ecosystems on earth- the Sagebrush Sea.” From Greater Yellowstone to Telluride, Showalter photographed from airplanes and blinds, and traversed by foot over mountaintops to give an expansive view of this stunning landscape. “I’ve also slept in gas fields that are never dark or quiet. It’s a journey of discovery and importance, “ Showalter says.
The gallery welcomes the viewer to explore the Sagebrush ecosystem, its inhabitants, and to learn about the importance of Western conservation for the future of the American West.
