IN SEARCH OF ICE, FROM THE ARCTIC TO ANTARCTICA: New Photography by Penny Ashford


  • Page Bond Gallery 1625 West Main Street Richmond, VA 23220 (map)

OPENING RECEPTION: Thursday, July 12, 6:00-8:00PM

When Penny Ashford traveled to Antarctica to continue her photographic exploration of water, she came face to face with the effects of climate change. IN SEARCH OF ICE is a series of photographs documenting the loss of ice and habitat in both Antarctica and the North Pole. Photography allows Ashford to capture the beauty and inceasing devastation of the ice while using biomorphic forms to explore abstract compositions. Ashford “hopes that her photographs empower viewers to see themselves as stewards of the earth, that they, too, take positive action to preserve the great beauty of our planet.”
