In this body of work I used a glass vessel of water as a lens to photograph through. The use of the globe form of the vessel is meant to convey a visual association with the round form of mother Earth. By using glass I conjure the notion of the fragility of the planetary ecosystem in which all living beings play a role. Using water within to encapsulate and reflect the scenes, I create a visual metaphor to express the water resource issues associated with a warming planet. You can learn more about this series titled Glacial Waters in the artworks section. The artworks you see on this website are available for exhibition, purchase, lease and licensing. Ivana D. George will also do commissions of artwork for public, private and corporate collections. Please contact Ivana directly for more information.

I will present the entire portfolio of prints and discuss the motivations, meanings and methods of my photography and answer your questions. Jason Landry will discuss the work of Bradford Washburn.
