See the Grand Canyon from the Eyes of a Refined Photographer During This Exhibit

The George H.W. Bush Presidential Library and Museum is excited to announce a new exhibit, “Grand Canyon Photographs: Celebrating the Centennial 1919-2019.” This photography exhibit features some interesting "vintage looking" panoramic images shot on film, as well as some night photography shot with modern digital equipment.

Known for having a refined “photographer's eye,” American photographer Mark Burns creates compelling images that are a unique mastery of composition, lighting, and photographic technique. A master of the black and white image, Burns is skilled in large format photography and traditional silver gelatin and platinum printmaking yet is equally comfortable working in today's digital world.

By combining his traditional photography background and expertise with modern digital equipment and a digital workflow Burns believes that he can best express his creative vision. In October of 2015 Burns completed a five-year project photographing all 59 of America's national parks in black and white, “The National Parks Photography Project.” This iconic work became an exhibit that traveled to six museums.

As he continues to develop as a photographer and artist, Burns strives to keep his images timeless, reflecting a personal vision. We encourage you to check out the “Grand Canyon Photographs: Celebrating the Centennial 1919-2019” while you can!
