Judge: Ellen Bishop

As we become a more urban, urbane, and technologically-driven society, I thnk it is essential top re-establish our ties to landscape and place. I’ve tried to accomplish this through both images and words, as well as interpretive work. With a Ph.D. in geology, and specialization in the exotic terranes of the Northwest, it’s natural that Pacific Northwest landscapes–their geologic history and ecosystems–are my specialty. My photographs try to reveal the landscape’s changing forms through time., and human’s changing relationship with nature.  My images and interpretive work are used by the Nature Conservancy, Sierra Club, National Park Service, Oregon State Parks, Contdon Museum, High Desert Museum and many others.



Cash awards in both youth and adult categories.
