PRESS RELEASE: Bryan Pfeiffer Photographs at Korongo Gallery in Randolph


Wildlife Photography from Naturalist Bryan Pfeiffer

Exhibit Dates: October 14 - November 23.

Reception: Friday, October 14, from 5 to 7 pm

Artist Talk: Saturday, October 15, 4 pm

Birds leaping and gliding in flight. A tiny butterfly sipping nectar from a flower. And damselflies making love. These are among the luminaries in a photographic premier at Randolph's Korongo Gallery by naturalist Bryan Pfeiffer.

Pfeiffer has accumulated a dazzling array of images during three decades of a life outside. Known to many as "the bird guy," cohost of the long-running radio program For the Birds, he is making his formal debut as a nature photographer with this solo exhibit at Korongo. In addition to Bryan's amazing large-scale images of small creatures and stupendous landscapes, the exhibit will feature a lecture and workshop series, led by Bryan, to help nature lovers capture better results from their digital cameras.

"As a field naturalist I see in nature every day the drama of life on earth—birth, awareness, reproduction, struggle, death. And I see beauty," says Pfeiffer. "I bring it home through the lens of my camera, and share it with folks who don't necessarily work where I work—in mountains and bogs and forests."

Photography Workshops Oct 18, Oct 25, and Nov 1, 5–8 pm (registration required)
