Harrison Council for the Arts presents “Photographs by Kenton Gomez” at the Harrison Public Library, 2 Bruce Avenue, Harrison, NY on view April 8 to May 5.
ARTIST’S STATEMENT: I strive to present accurate and rarely viewed scenes depicting the wildlife of North America. My preferred method of still photography hopefully brings the viewer into the lives of the creatures I am passionate about, capturing moments we should all perhaps take the time to experience personally.
My style demands critical sharpness and pleasing backgrounds, honoring the beauty of the animals of North America. I hope my photography inspires people to look a little closer and experience our native wildlife, from the smallest migratory birds with their feats of endurance and daring to the largest mammals and their struggles with life in an overcrowded world. Each has their own story.
