Images of Florida: Lee Dunkel

November 6, 2013 – January 4, 2014

Lee Dunkel’s photography references nature through a shimmering black-and-white palette. She characteristically explores a geographical location over a long period of time, often years, allowing her to capture subtle changes in the landscape.

Using the classic gelatin silver printing process, She has never changed her commitment to the labor-intensive method of processing film in the darkroom.

“Lee Dunkel explores the landscape in a unique and compelling way. The eloquent black-and-white images of details and forms in nature show the biological cycles of growth, decay and renewal in nature to form some of the most important and compelling photographs ever made of the Florida landscape. No other photographer has so consistently and successfully created photographs that draw out the uniquely expressive and poetic possibilities of Florida’s natural world.
Kevin Miller, Director, Southeast Museum of Photography, Daytona Beach, Florida

 Every great work of art has two faces, one toward its own time and one toward the future, toward eternity.
