    Jack Curran

Joshua Tree National park is like visiting another planet. The trees and sparse landscape create a sense of displacement. When exploring the park in the early morning or late evening, the trees take on eerie and mysterious silhouette shapes. Almost other worldly.

You might say there was a natural collision of circumstances between Jack’s nearly lifelong love of nature, and that of photography. His wondrous journey into nature began when he attended an Outward Bound month-long wilderness course at age 16. At 18, (just over 40 years ago) he picked up his first camera, developed his first B&W print in the darkroom and quickly put his two passions together. In recent years Jack’s photography has been exhibited in Paris, Athens, Berlin, Moscow, and Malaga Spain and domestically in the US and published internationally.
