A Photographer Shoots Wildfire

A Photographer Shoots Wildfire

Danger, Drama, Beauty, & Pathos
Artist Talk with Photographer Jürgen Hess
May 28, 7pm
Suggested Donation $5






Photographer Jürgen Hess discusses his experiences with shooting wildfires in the Columbia River Gorge. He describes the show of the fire as being “dramatic, up close & personal, powerful, beautiful, and with huge sound.” The firefighters are defined by “coolness under fire, adrenaline junkies full of excitement when faced with danger, comrades, and having great feelings of worth.” And Jürgen seeks to explain the pathos of the wildfire through his images of “burned homes, origin, and dead trees.” He will bring images and videos to exemplify this wondrous photographic experience. Suggested donation to fund future CCA Gallery Exhibitions, and wine and beer available for purchase.
