An Exhibit of photographic nature art by Connecticut native George Ostertag will be featured at the Elihu Burritt library at Central Connecticut State University during the month of June 2010.
The framed photographic art will include images of wildlife, waterfalls, wildflowers, and scenic views of well-known areas and national landmarks in various parts of the country.
The photographer has had the unique opportunity to capture many spectacular scenes while researching material for more than 23 hiking, outdoor recreation, travel guides, and photography books (for which he is the sole photographer and the co-author with his wife Rhonda Ostertag). Some of their books, including many second edition copies, will also be on exhibit.
George has put together an extensive photo stock celebrating the American West and, more recently, many Eastern states. Wherever boot and backpack would take him, he took camera and tripod. Diverse landscapes opened up unlimited photo opportunities with humbling deserts, rich forests, rocky coasts, waterfalls, and high mountains. A geologist by training and naturalist by heart, he finds beauty in all habitats.
His photography has been displayed at numerous galleries and has appeared in many publications. His images have graced calendars, greeting cards, and postcards, many of which will be on display during this exhibit.
