REACH is a series of original black and white photographs by award-winning artist Richard S. McWherter. These dramatically lit nature scenes evoke a powerful sense of life, death and rebirth that can only be felt when fully engaged in these temporal elements.
"My work champions some of the hidden and temporal natural treasures on this planet and hopefully challenges everyone to be actively engaged in protecting our surroundings. Promoting this understanding of our world, and our place in it, will help us make sure it is here for generations to come."
What others are saying about the REACH portfolio:
“Very beautiful light and compositions. The images are profound and poetic,” said a recent reviewer. “Your images hovering in darkness reveal a new landscape possibility that I saw in many of your works,” she said.
“The whole REACH portfolio is just breathtaking, like using nature as a mirror to reflect the deeper more subtle parts of this human experience we all share,” another reviewer wrote. “The full beauty and deep mystery of light and dark is expressed in a dance of contrast throughout the forest surrounding that column of light. I found that the contrast allowed me to SEE the forest and the oneness it expresses. It’s beautiful,” he said.
“Congratulations on your (Reach) series. It's absolutely beautiful!” wrote yet another reviewer. “I love how you are able to transmit such a strong mood, the magic, and legacy of an ancient forest...The trees and nature really are alive in your images and they absolutely become persons themselves. It's not easy to transmit that and you did it very well.”
