Photography Exhibition by John H. Williams at the Library

The Eli M. Oboler at Idaho State University is pleased to to announce an exhibit of nature photography by John H. Williams, which will be on display from April 3 through June 30, 2017, in the Library's 1st floor art exhibit area.

Williams began photographing in 1975 with the intent to produce illustrations for his magazine articles After years of hard work, reading everything he could get hands on regarding how to photograph, how to look at photographs, how to compose a photo, and more, he eventually wrote his own book, Field Techniques and Tips for Nature Photographers : A Practical Guide for Quality Photo Images (CreateSpace, 2014).

As the years went by, Williams became increasingly enamored with the artistry of "fine" photography.  His focus has always been on nature, especially wildlife.  He writes: "My academic training as a biologist has been extremely helpful in allowing me insight into the behaviors of the animals I pursue.  However, in the process of photographic wildlife, I invariably, encounter a wealth of other photographic opportunities as well: wildflowers, fungi, Fall colors, and a wide array of scenic subjects.

The Library will host a reception for Mr. Williams and his work on  Wednesday, April 19th, from 4:30-6:00 pm. Meet the artist, visit with others who appreciate art, enjoy some light refreshment, and revel in the deep beauty of nature.  Copies of his book and prints of his work will be available during the reception.

You may view the art exhibit whenever the library is open; check for a current calendar listing.
