Fine Art photographer Brian Trainor presented his Biscayne National Park photography exhibit at the December’s Homestead City Council meeting. The pieces will be exhibited at the Homestead City Hall Council Chambers through January.
The photos, which were captured during his month-long artist residency at the National Park that surrounds Homestead, present themes of conservation and sustainability.
“In some of the pieces I focus on the beauty of our national park,” said Trainor, who recently completed an artist residency at Everglades National Park. “In others I isolated garbage I saw in the park to bring attention to the issue of pollution and destruction of our unique South Florida environment.”
Councilmember Stephen Shelley, who started the “Art in the Chamber” program, inaugurated the exhibit during the Wednesday, Dec. 14, Homestead City Council meeting, and invited the community to visit the council chamber and enjoy Trainor’s photography of Biscayne National Park.
Trainor, who has practiced photography for more than 30 years, does not digitally manipulate the pictures, but focuses on the process of photography from conception to life. His Everglades National Park artist in residency work also will be exhibited at the City of Homestead City Hall Council Chambers later in 2011.
