About The Artist John Craig

The question I ask in much of my work is: “Where does experience end and memory begin?” Pursuing answers to this query, I do not intend to freeze a singular moment or seize a memory. In works like those included in Fire and Ice, I explore timeless landscapes and strive to arrive at a wider experience, capturing the juncture between earth, sky, time and the infinite. Purposely moving the camera during long exposures allows me to capture soft light and rich colors. My images challenge perceptions, but also intrigue--presenting an invitation for viewers to explore the attraction of disregarded, forbidden and unforgiving landscapes.

Craig earned a BFA in Photography from New Jersey City University. He has exhibited and curated exhibits in numerous venues. Most recently, as a Las Cruces transplant, he curated Water and The Face of Climate Change at the Southwest Environmental Center. He has exhibited in East Coast venues in exhibits such as the New Jersey City University Alumni Exhibit, Jerseyscapes and The 43 Trees Project.

About The Artist Alex Tullis

Photographer Alex Tullis made artistic use of an opportunity to travel from his New Jersey home to Iceland, not totally comprehending how the impact of the geologically and volcanically active landscape would affect him when he arrived on the island.

Some might think Iceland is colorless and desolate. The landscape Tullis saw ---- mountains, plateaus, active volcanoes, lava fields, geysers, black sand, waterfalls, and retreating glaciers spawning rivers flowing through the tundra lowlands, their history spilling into the sea ---- stirred an emotional response. Tullis muses, “Here the memory of the land can be felt, not as alien or moonscape, but more like a sudden tap on the shoulder, as might happen when your eye catches the flicker of an unexpected and unfamiliar picture in a distant mirror."

Visit our exhibit Fire and Ice to experience the skill Tullis employed to capture the island's unique palette, its northern lights, remnants of former farms abandoned to climate and poor soil, the exceptional vistas and "that grand sense of place that happens when the landscape is overwhelming and extraordinary".
