Light Space & Time Online Art Gallery is pleased to announce that Washington wildlife photographer Gaylord Mink has been named as the gallery’s new featured artist. Gaylord will now be in the gallery’s Artist Showcase section and will be promoted by the gallery for the next 30 days.
Gaylord Mink was born in Indiana and he migrated to Washington where he was a research scientist for most of his adult life. When Gaylord was near retirement he made several trips to through eastern Africa where he became interested in nature and wildlife photography.
After retirement Gaylord took up still and video photography. For a short time he produced short videos mainly for educational purposes and in recent years he has concentrated mostly on still photography.
Gaylord says this about his art, “While the subject matter has varied greatly, one favorite subject has remained the herds of wild horses that roam the Yakama Reservation not too far away from where I live. I have exhibited some of the wildlife images at local events and some of these images hang in many local businesses. However, mostly I post images online to get the critical comments and suggestions necessary for self-improvement.”
He goes on a states that, “Recently I have become intrigued with digital software to modify images in ways that create impressions and feelings quite apart from the originals. As a novice at art I am enjoying the experience of looking at my surroundings in new and interesting ways.”
