Port Clyde — Talking with Barbara Bosworth about her vision of contemporary landscape photography opens up one’s to looking at the world with a fresh perspective. The Georges River Land Trust and K2 Family Foundation offer a “guided conversation” with Bosworth, a nationally exhibited landscape and nature photographer and professor of photography at the Massachusetts College of Art and Design in Boston, Wednesday, July 23, at 5 p.m. at the home of Rob and Margot Kelley.

Photographers often push themselves to look at the world in new and different ways that lead them to interesting expressions of what they see. Contemporary landscape photography has evolved from the earliest pristine photographs from the likes of Ansel Adams that reflected a world untouched by humans; to current artists interpreting urban landscapes, and everything in between.

Space is limited to 15 people. Interested parties should call the Land Trust office at 594-5166 to reserve a spot and receive directions.

Bosworth is the Land Trust’s 2014 artist in residence and is focusing her residency on photographing the smaller streams and tributaries of the St. George River with her large, 8-by-10 inch format camera.
