Norman Locks, Professor Emeritus




Locks photographs the biodiversity of nature and masters a visual language for speaking about the wilderness.  There is a democracy at work in Locks' imagery.  Every leaf, rock, tree and blade of grass is deserving of attention.  These works present the beauty of the ecosystems, the details, the enormity of the delicate enterprise of nature.  They offer the viewer a powerful sense of belonging to nature and serve as an irrefutable call for stewardship and eco-sensitivity.
