Rick Katz has been taking photographs for many years, beginning with a Brownie box-camera and eventually migrating to the digital world.  His favorite subjects are parks (national, state, local, and tribal) plus any place nature is on display.  Rick also captures macro, portrait, event and food images.  Photography is very structured, being constrained by the physics of light.  Capturing the events of the motion, the photograph freezes the scene in time, forever.

In this exhibit, Rick has selected views from various locations around the United States, with the hope of bring to the viewer the excitement and power of the scenes displayed.  The beauty of nature also provides a measure of serenity, away from the pressures and stresses of everyday life.  He hopes viewing these images will encourage travel and appreciation of the natural beauty found in our country.

Rick’s work has been displayed at various galleries and venues in the greater Chicago are, in juried shows in Chicago, Highland Park, Skokie, Lincolnwood and San Diego, and are also represented in private collections in Fairfax, Santa Barbara and Sand Diego, California; Sarasota, Florida; New York; Phoenix, Arizona, Washington DC; and Chicago.
