Alpine Art & Frame, Salt Lake City– Artist Discussion Thursday, Jan. 16th and Opening Reception Friday for Gallery Stroll
Unity of Light is a collection of images captured by Eugene Tapahe in the last six years as a fine art landscape photographer. During Tapahe’s early years of life on the Navajo reservation, he lived off the land with his grandma and practiced the traditional ways of their ancestors. Tapahe learned at an early age the importance of respecting, preserving and protecting that which is sacred—the land, water and nature.
Tapahe has united this love for nature and culture with his photography to create unique images of life. On Tapahe’s photo excursions he has expressed, “Life and nature is always changing. It never sits still. The light, the dark, and the composition of nature is always moving. It’s alive! It takes patience, diligence and my whole heart to capture what nature is composing.”
Throughout Tapahe’s life he has witnessed the darkest of days, felt the darkest of nights, but through all this adversity, he continues to seek the balance of light and dark…to ultimately find that unity of light.
Tapahe invites you to come feel the beauty of the Southwest through his eyes, heart, and spirit.
