FRESH Exhibition at Klompching Gallery

I am very excited to announce that I have been selected for the FRESH exhibition at the Klompching Gallery in Brooklyn, New York.  Esteemed curator/collector W.M. Hunt and Darren Ching curated this exhibition showcasing the work of four contemporary photographers.  Four images from the In the Landscape series will be shown alongside the work of Skott Chandler, Harold Ross, and Ahron D. Weiner.  

"Donna J. Wan does literally put us “In the Landscape.” How we look or how we see is at the heart of this work. Man’s presence is important in this work because it provides us with a sense of scale, the way in which we are dwarfed by the enormity of Nature. She gets it right. Seeing from the photographer’s distant point of view we share that smallness, like little specks of humanity, flies on the wall … of a mountain". - W.M. Hunt

Exhibition dates:  July 20 - August 13, 2011
Opening Reception:  Thursday, July 21st, 6-8pm
