Mead Eagle Photography
Photographers Dan Mead, a former educator turned psychotherapist, and his wife Sally Eagle, entrepreneur and the first executive director of the Berkshire-Taconic Community Foundation, first photographed their travels for personal enjoyment, and subsequently to document them for family and friends.
Over the past 35 years, the process of editing and selecting photographs to be viewed by others enticed them to focus more intently on vividly capturing the essence of the landscapes, the wildlife and the cultures they encountered and the scenes they witnessed.
Since the advent of digital photography they have had the opportunity to both travel extensively and to study with and learn from some of the leading landscape and wildlife photographers in the country, such as David Muensch, Jack Dykinga and John Shaw. In 2008, they began exhibiting their work in schools and communities in the Northeast.
In the Mark W. Potter Gallery through March 8.
