Gallery artist, Paula McCartney, is well known for her Bird Watching series; exhibited at the gallery in March/April 2010. She's also extremely adept with making exquisite artist books. We have a limited number of these in our inventory and think they would make a great gift for collectors of photo books. We highly recommend an in-person inspection of On Thin Ice, In A Blizzard (just released) and Bird Watching.

On Thin Ice, In A Blizzard

"Snow begins to fall, grows denser, and obliterates my view while exposing the cosmos.  Ice shifts, opening a beautiful black void.  A wondrous view as I begin my descent.  On Thin Ice, In a Blizzard is a sub-series of my project, A Field Guide to Snow and Ice.   While all of the images in the field guide are excerpts of natural landscapes—just not all snow and ice—the images in this book were constructed in the darkroom.  A winter of my imagination".—Paula McCartney
