“We need the tonic of wildness... At the same time that we are earnest to explore and learn all things, we require that all things be mysterious and unexplorable, that land and sea be indefinitely wild, unsurveyed and unfathomed by us because unfathomable. We can never have enough of nature.” Henry David Thoreau
Anyone who is captivated by nature and wildlife Photography will be wholly engaged by this show and the lush prints on display by Anfield and Tartar.
