Spontaneity, flexibility, patience, hardiness and smarts are just a few of the traits a successful storm chaser must possess. No one understands that better than David Mayhew, whose artistic photographs capture the dramatic and unique sky effects that exist before, during and after weather events. Storm Chaser, an exhibition of Mayhew’s extraordinary work, will be on display at the Jackson Junge Gallery from Tuesday, August 24 through Sunday, September 26.
While Mayhew’s photo portfolio spans a variety of subject matters, his stormy skies garner the greatest attention and remain his first passion. For years, he has traversed the country from Colorado to Indiana and Canada to Mexico in pursuit of the perfect storm. His priority is tornados and electrical storms as they create the most intriguing and compelling sky effects.
An opening reception takes place Friday, August 27 from 6 – 9 pm. The photographer will be present and the public is invited to attend free of charge.
