Arts Walk Pick 2018
Daniel G. Bernstein’s photography covers the land, animals, people, and important events in and around Olympia and the greater Pacific Northwest. He documented the multiple marriages that took place in the Capitol Rotunda in 2012 when marriage equality first became law. You name it, and he’s documented it with his camera — not just newsworthy events, but the beauty to be found all around us.
For example, “Steps-to-Serenity” is a study of light and shadow. The brilliant yellow-green of leaves contrasts with the soft and withered gray of old tree limbs as the camera peers up an archway of branches on a ladder ascending to a tree swing overlooking a Zen garden near Yelm. It was built by Roderick Wolgamott Romero, lead singer of the former Seattle-based band Sky Cries Mary. Another stunner is a picture of a burning sunset over water at Titlow Park in Tacoma.
Bernstein will be showing 50 to 75 of these and other photos — including pictures of pets, landscapes, macro photography and much more — at Pet Works during Arts Walk this year. Showing with him will be artist Julie Jansen.
