Event Description

CONSERVATION JOURNAL by Jason Houston
Join us at the opening Saturday, January 18th. 5-9pm, with a talk by the artist at 6:30pm.

From fisheries management to deforestation, from endangered species protection to ethical meat production, Houston’s images help make exotic, complex, and sometimes controversial stories personal and accessible to a broader audience at his new solo show opening at Fovea Exhibitions Saturday Jan 18th.

 The photographs underscore the point that conservation work cannot simply be about preserving plants and animals, but must also improve the lives of the people who are the stewards of these natural resources. The show includes images from conservation projects around the world, including  Borneo, Mexico, Seychelles, Nicaragua, Kenya, Belize, Ecuador, Peru, and the United States. Anecdotal captions are written on the margins of the prints.

"Conservation Journal" opens Saturday with a reception from 5-9pm, and at 6:30PM Jason will give an artist talk on his approach and share a slideshow featuring additional images and stories from over 10 years of doing cause driven photography.

Jason Houston is a fellow of the International League of Conservation Photographers. Based in Boulder, he concentrates on long-term projects. His goal in documenting environmental issues is not merely to educate, or document success, but to provoke conversations about the underlying dynamics of conservation work.  Mr. Houston is widely published in the national press, he exhibits and lectures across the country, and he teaches photography and documentary workshops privately and for various national organizations.

On view January 18th through April 6th
