Grady Tarbutton, Photographer and member of The PhotoZone Gallery.
I retired in 2015 from a long career in public service. My career was very challenging and satisfying, but I put my artistic self to one side. But I had not forgotten that
I have always expressed myself through photography, especially when I was younger, but continued it outside of work and family responsibilities. That became my answer to “What’s Next?”
My emphasis is – as always – the creation of fine art images that look beyond the surface to reveal the dynamism, power and beauty of this world. I look to immerse people emotionally and aesthetically in it.
This series is titled “Rock and Concrete.” These photographs contrast ancient Native American rock art (approximately 1600 to 12,000 years old) with modern creations.
In the end, both are mankind’s temporary expressions. What will remain in 500 years? 10,000?
These photos are reflections on different cultural values and expressions from two world-views, with one perhaps more durable than the other.
