Mother Nature’s Easel
My earliest memories are of my wanderings about the forests, meadows and mountains of my childhood home in western Maine. Guided by my father, I learned the names of all the flora and fauna, and learned to appreciate their beauties. Six decades later, I have found my way back to the places of my early fascination.
The photographs before you represent my continuing wonder of Mother Nature and her artistic hand at molding all of her created parts and pieces in just the right places.
It is my pleasure to share Mother Nature’s Easel with you.
Darrell Roak is a photographer whose nature is to bring an ethereal appearance to his photographs. Roak began his photographic journey in 2010 when he took his first workshop at Maine Media. He has since expanded his experience through workshops across the United States. Among his contemporary advisors are Tillman Crane and Russell Young.
The subjects of Roak’s photos tend to lean toward abandoned structures and out-of-the-way spots, which remind one of day’s gone by. He uses an assortment of cameras to capture his photographs including digital and pinhole.
Roak’s photographs have been exhibited at Carnegie Visual Arts Center in Decatur, Alabama; Photo Place Gallery in Middlebury, Vermont; and The Griffin Museum of Photography in Winchester, Massachusetts. Roak’s images are also included in personal collections throughout the United States.
