    Jack Curran

I recently spent a week in Iceland travelling the country to shoot BW landscapes. While sunset was generally around 11:30pm, I found myself shooting well after sunset an into the early morning hours. This series and the subsequent additional waterfall images are all captured during very low light and a shortened dynamic range.

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.
