ART ON VIEW
"BIRD PORTRAITS” BY STEVE CAGAN
ON EXHIBITION UNTIL JUNE 21
Although birds exhibit no facial expressions, we have a way of attributing states of mind and characteristics to them: they are wise, angry, ferocious, comical.
"These black-and-white images are my attempts at “portraits;” they’re not nature pictures in the usual sense, they are not intended to help with field identification—there are other photographers doing great work in that area. Rather I hope they will help the viewers relate in a personal and aesthetic way to my “subjects.”
Steve Cagan's photographs are available for purchase at the Nature Center. A portion of every sale helps benefit the Nature Center at Shaker Lakes. To purchase and for more information on purchasing, email Kim Bihler at email@example.com.
