The Northwest Passage
On exhibit at the Cherrydale Branch Library, August 2 – October 2, 2017
Robin Kent is a fine arts photographer known for his dramatic images of Washington, D.C. and, more recently, remote locations such as the high altitude monarch preserves in central Mexico, night photography of the Milky Way in remote areas of Yosemite National Park, and the frozen landscapes of the Antarctic Peninsula as well as the Arctic Circle.
In the last two years, Robin has traveled to both Polar Regions, photographing Iceland in September 2015 and June 2017 and Antarctica in February 2016. In August 2016, he returned to the northern Polar region with a 23-day transit of the Northwest Passage, inside the Arctic Circle.
Robin’s photographs are in the collections of major corporations, local business organizations, and individual collectors. His training has included landscape photography from the late Galen Rowell, founder of Mountain Light Photography and advanced printing techniques from Mac Holbert, a co-founder of Nash Editions. He is former President and a current member of Great Falls Studios, a consortium of 100 plus artists in Great Falls, Virginia. He is represented by Art Matters in Glen Echo, Maryland. More examples of his work can be seen at his website, www.photographybykent.com.
