News from The Nature Conservancy:

On September 29, 2010— Governor Sonny Perdue announced the acquisition of 6,911 acres in Long County as part of the Townsend Wildlife Management Area (WMA). The property is located in the lower Altamaha River floodplain, one of the most valuable ecological corridors in Georgia. The Altamaha River is one of The Nature Conservancy priorities and TNC played a key role in this acquisition. In the January 1998 issue of National Geographic magazine the work of Peter Essick’s provided visual support to these efforts with an article: “Altamaha River: The Easy Ways of the Altamaha.” For complete details visit The Nature Conservancy web site.

Celebrating the work of Alexander Rodchenko born on this day in 1891. Rodchenko was a Russian artist, sculptor, photographer and graphic designer. He was one of the founders of constructivism and Russian design. Rodchenko was one of the most versatile Constructivist and Productivist artists to emerge after the Russian Revolution. He worked as a painter and graphic designer before turning to photomontage and photography. His photography was socially engaged, formally innovative, and opposed to a painterly aesthetic. Concerned with the need for analytical-documentary photo series, he often shot his subjects from odd angles—usually high above or below—to shock the viewer and to postpone recognition. He wrote: “One has to take several different shots of a subject, from different points of view and in different situations, as if one examined it in the round rather than looked through the same key-hole a#lumieregallery&#AlexanderRodchenkol#rodchenkon#sovietphotographyhenko

Celebrating the work of Robert Glenn Ketchum on his 75th birthday. Ketchum's imagery and books have helped to define contemporary color photography while at the same time addressing critical national environmental issues. This has made him one of the most successful artist/activists in American history. His work in Alaska illustrate this point, first in the Tongass Rain Forest, where his images were credited with helping to pass the Tongass Timber Reform Bill of 1990. One of his current efforts is in Southwest Alaska, aimed to protect the largest wild salmon habitats from the ill-advised Pebble Mine. Wishing you many more years to continue your work!!
