Afterimage Photograph Gallery presents Craig Varjabedian: "Into the Great White Sands" opening day
Afterimage Photograph Gallery will present the exhibition, "Into the Great White Sands," photographs of White Sands National Monument by acclaimed photographer Craig Varjabedian. The artist created these masterful images during a period of over five years as he explored the surrealistic landscape of White Sands, located in southeastern New Mexico.
White Sands is a place breathtakingly vast, encompassing 275 miles with a landscape entirely made of crystals of gypsum and possibly our next national park. Pure white dunes roll in waves for miles to the mountainous horizon, forming a landscape filled with spectacular color and astonishing light. The park is place brimming with a history both ancient and recently significant, contained in an environment with flourishing vegetation and wildlife, whose days begin in vivid sunrise and end in dramatically vibrant sunsets. The images selected for the exhibition are from his collection found in his recently published book of the same name. Autographed books are available for purchase at the gallery.
Following the opening day, the exhibit will be on view through April 9.
