Welcome to Greg Lawson Galleries online. This site is an introduction to the Passion For Place gallery located in Sedona, Arizona. The West Sedona destination is a sanctuary site away from the heart of town providing a place to slow down and connect with your favorite images depicting Lawson’s experiences in the worldwide field.
Greg Lawson Galleries is a must-see for lovers of nature. Greg’s work depicting wildlife, landscapes and fascinating places is noted for drawing viewers into the image as if they are with him on location. Whether the portrayal is strong or simple, the spirit of an independent producer is present in every image ─ and there are always 330 unique images on display. The collections depicting Lawson’s ‘passion for place’ have been created in all still-camera formats throughout his enduring history as a photographic artist.
Acknowledging a higher authority has been on the human agenda into antiquity. Greg Lawson’s Passion for Place gallery presents “Houses of Worship” featuring dozens of worship related images assembled from global travels. Diverse global societies have created shrines, temples and churches along with a plethora of statuary and artistic renditions; a sampling of these are included in the current exhibition.
Also currently exhibited at Greg Lawson Galleries are a collection of images stripped down to the bare essentials in a showcase featuring black and white print productions created in modern media and historic silver gelatin stylizations.
“The trip from black to white contains many shades of gray,” says global image artist Greg Lawson. “These limited tonalaties have the capacity to focus our attention on subtleties that can make the full spectrum something of a distraction by comparison.”
“A monochrome print is a good storyteller in its own right,” Lawson continues. “It can make us peer into the image more deeply and therefore pull out of it a greater depth of meaning or understanding, particularly when that’s the purpose of the print.”
“Because it strips our visual cognizance down to the bare minimum, the B&W can sometimes elicit greater insight from within; it opens the door for us to recreate the impression into a message that contains a full spectrum, perhaps not of color and hue, but of subtle or even shrouded messaging.”
All Greg Lawson monochrome or black and white prints are available as museum quality silver gelatin productions on fiber based upgrades, with either selenium or sepia toning.
