I was introduced to the work of Huntington Witherill
by photographer Nick Gleis
and I spent way too long on his website, which is not only rich with images but is also an engaging read. A snippet from Huntington's bio:
Having studied photography in the early 1970's with such notables as Ansel Adams, Wynn Bullock, Steve Crouch and Al Weber, Witherill has remained faithful to his classical photographic training while progressively transitioning toward a more contemporary approach to the medium. Since 1970, his work has been featured in more than one-hundred individual and group exhibitions in museums and galleries throughout the world.
Since 1975, he has also taught photography for a variety of institutions and workshop programs throughout the United States, including the University of California, the Friends of Photography, the Center for Photograpic Art, the Oklahoma Arts Institute, and the Ansel Adams Gallery.
His next exhibition opens on October 22nd at Verve Gallery
in Santa Fe.Rock Forms, Salt Point, CA, 2009
