Photographs by Big Indian resident Michael Wentland are on display at the Catskill Watershed Corporation (CWC), 905 Main St., Margaretville through March 15, 2017.
The office is open from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. weekdays except holidays. Visitors are most welcome.
“The Catskills: Through a Lens” is an eclectic group of images that demonstrate Wentland’s unique eye and affinity for the unusual. A herd of curious donkeys on an Andes farm is photographed from knee level; red taillights are reflected on the superstructure of the Woodland Valley bridge in a time-lapse image taken at dusk. In another night time shot, a Catskill Mountain Railroad coach appears adrift on the ocean after a snowstorm.
Wentland, who holds a BFA with an emphasis in Interior Architectural Design, is an artist, craftsman and educator who sees potential photo subjects at every turn. Although he loves landscapes, wildlife and portraiture, he most enjoys what he calls Americana Street Photography. Wentland typically shoots digital images but occasionally makes photos with his treasured 1924 Kodamatic camera.
His photographs are available for purchase in multiple sizes, framed or unframed. Contact him at firstname.lastname@example.org
