Tom Murphy – comments on his photography 3:12

Murphy’s photography illustrates his passionate love for our wild clean earth. Tom’s understanding of wildlife is apparent from the beginning. He photographs wildlife as they go about their daily lives, patiently waiting for each animal to share its life with him in the wild.

Tom’s images reveal wildlife interacting with each other and with their environment: hunting, eating, drinking, running, plowing through deep snow, giving birth, nursing, playing, resting and sleeping, all in the beauty of the wildest places on earth. His landscapes reflect the natural beauty he finds and loves and works diligently to preserve.

Tom Murphy was raised on a 7500 acre cattle ranch in western South Dakota. This experience taught him more than he wanted to know about cattle and convinced him that he didn’t want to chase cows for the rest of his life, but it also provided him with invaluable lessons in animal behavior and a deep love for clean, wide open land.

On this day in 1968, American singer and songwriter Johnny Cash recorded the album Johnny Cash at Folsom Prison, in front of an audience of some 2,000 inmates at California's Folsom Prison. Shown here are two images by photographer Al Clayton. The first is a portrait of Cash taken on the set of the Johnny Cash show in Nashville and the second is an image from 1969 at the Cummins Prison in Arkansas. Prison reform was one of many humanitarian issues that Cash championed. More images by Clayton can be found on his Lumiere artist page. www.lumieregallery.net#johnnycash #alclaytonphotography #lumieregallery ... See MoreSee Less
