World famous photographer Gwen Norton has certainly done a lot of traveling in her life.
Recently she decided to turn her globetrotting experiences to a more focused purpose. She’s taken a number of trips with photography groups in the past few years, and the output of a few of these working vacations is now on display at the Feldman Family Art Space at the M.V. Film Center (Massachussets USA) through Oct. 14.
The exhibition features spectacular sweeping landscapes — primarily from two very different locales, Antarctica and the Palouse, a region of the Northwestern U.S. known for its fertile soil and verdant rolling hillocks.
Norton has done seven travel workshops so far, visiting locations in Europe (Scotland’s Outer Hebrides), Mexico (San Miguel de Allende), South America (Patagonia), Antarctica, and points around the U.S. Each location is known for unique terrain and natural beauty. “Landscapes give me time to stop and think and prepare,” says Norton. “I like capturing the expanse and the bigger vistas.”
