VALLEY COTTAGE, N.Y. -- The Valley Cottage Library will be displaying an exhibit called "From the Mountains to the River - Landscape Photography of the Hudson Valley" by local photographer Steve Aaron throughout February with an artist reception on Feb. 6.
Aaron has been photographing landscapes of the Catskills, Shawangunks, and the Hudson Valley for many years. He enjoys exploring his surroundings and seeking out the natural beauty the landscape has to offer.
Aaron's work seeks to emphasize a perspective that brings the viewer into the landscape. Each of the images in this exhibition have a unique story as to how he got to the location or where he was standing when creating the image. Some were shot miles from civilization, others shot standing at cliff edges or barefoot in the water.
Aaron's work has been exhibited at Gallery Meraki in Garnerville, and other galleries in New York and Connecticut.
His work has been published by The Nature Conservancy, U.S. National Park Service, Open Space Institute, Mohonk Preserve, Ulster County Tourism, Ulster County Government and the Ulster County Chamber of Commerce.
Aaron lives in Valley Cottage with his wife, Lesley and daughter, Alison.
Opening reception will be held from 1-3 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 6.
