Sam Pranger Photography Landscape & Nature Photography, Duluth MN
Lake Effect is the latest collaboration between local landscape photographers Brett Grandson and Samantha Pranger. Both based in Duluth, their work explores their individual takes on life in and around the Twin Ports. Lake Effect opens on Friday, September 6th 2013 from 6 to 9 pm at Washington Galleries.
Grandson's powerful black and white prints focus on the immense power and beauty of Lake Superior. “The last four months have been a journey filled with long walks on the beach; many hours of thought poured into creating a connection between dead wood and the life it is still filled with.”
Pranger's work follows the year's seasonal changes throughout the northland. “I want my photographs to help people see the beauty that surrounds us, as I experience it everyday. I hope my work will inspire others with feelings of wonder and a desire to protect nature for future generations. My goal is to convey the everyday world in such a way as to show people how extraordinary it truly is. I find being in nature very relaxing and hope my photographs prompt the same feelings within the viewer.”
Lake Effect is viewable Saturdays and Sundays from 1 to 5 pm through September 29th as well as Friday, September 13th during the Second Friday Art Crawl and by appointment. Washington Galleries is located in the former Washington Junior High School at 315 North Lake Avenue in Duluth.
