Support a Texan Artist by Attending This Comprehensive Photography Exhibit

The George H.W. Bush Presidential Library and Museum is excited to announce our newest exhibit, “Grand Canyon Photographs: Celebrating the Centennial 1919-2019.” This photography exhibit will feature some interesting "vintage looking" panoramic images shot on film, as well as some night photography shot with modern digital equipment. In addition to the traditional and contemporary still photography, a large 4K digital monitor will play a looping time-lapse video that compresses the ever- changing light, hues, and weather of the majestic Grand Canyon into several minutes of immersive video.

American photographer, Mark Burns, began working professionally in 1978. Burns' work has appeared in numerous publications around the world. They include Time Magazine, The Sporting News, The Wine Spectator, Wine Enthusiast, and Wine & Spirits Magazine, to name a few, as well as many other regional magazines, corporate publications, and websites.

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.

As he continues to develop as a photographer and artist, Burns strives to keep his images timeless, reflecting a personal vision. Most of the time, this philosophy translates into a photographer’s personal work. For Burns, it is often evident in his commercial work as well. He says "There are snapshots and there are photographs, a good photograph should convey a feeling or mood, evoke a reaction. Profoundly, it is sometimes what's not so obvious in a photograph that gives it strength."

Grand Canyon Photographs: Celebrating the Centennial 1919-2019 will be on display through April 30, 2019. We encourage you to come check out this exhibit!
