Renowned photographer Frank Espada spent the first 50 years of his career documenting the issues concerning minorities, culminating in The Puerto Rican Diaspora:  Themes in the Survival of a People, a book which has won numerous awards, and is represented in the Library of Congress along with 83 vintage prints.  Now in the sunset of his own life, Espada has turned his lense toward the sunset views over the Pacific Ocean, photographing the same patch of sky every day for a year.  “Pacific Skies” is an examination of the dynamic between the sun and the atmosphere as well as photographic composition and aesthetics related particularly to color, light, perspective, and form.  To view more from the collection, please click here.

RH Alexander creates images as disparate as Buddhist monks in Tibet, Occupy protestors in San Francisco, still life studies,  and stunning California landscapes.  With a Ph.D in psychology as well as intensive training in newspaper journalism, he brings a deeply analytical and technical eye to his work.  He says, “Photographs capture stillness in movement-a gift that allows us to stop time and deeply enter the visual world.  But great photographs also capture movement in stillness.  Within the image, one can sense something about to happen, something coming to life or passing away.”  The images below are from his California Landscape series.  You can view more from this series and others on his website.
