Landscape photographer Rick Berk will be showing his art at Freeport Community Library for the month of March. After 44 years based in the New York metropolitan area, photographer Rick Berk now resides in Freeport, Maine. He first visited Maine in 1998 and decided right then that he would one day live there. He has spent the past two and a half years exploring the state with camera in hand, trying to capture not just how a place looks, but also how it feels. While Rick occasionally works in black and white, his work is most noted for the use of vibrant color and fine detail. He loves to use wide angle lenses in his work, emphasizing foreground elements while creating a sense of place. He uses on-camera filters to help manage exposure in difficult lighting situations, allowing him to capture both the vibrant colors of sunrise or sunset, as well as foreground detail that would otherwise be lost in the shadows. Though his work differs in many ways, Rick draws a lot of inspiration from Ansel Adams, striving to match his ability to communicate mood through image as Ansel did.
