Artist Statement
America is a very photogenically diverse and beautiful country.  I have traveled extensively throughout our country photographing its sea coasts, mountains, waterfalls, and deserts.  Our National Parks System is second to none in the world and the beauty within these parks should be enjoyed by everyone with a love for the beauty of nature.  The United State’s National Park System makes it easy for nature lovers to explore and enjoy the great outdoors.  However, there are many, many places around America that are equally beautiful and photogenic.  My exhibit in the Community Gallery is a combination of scenes from within the United States National Park System as well as scenes from locations that are off the beaten path but just as photogenic as the more iconic locations around the country.  If you enjoy the scenic beauty of nature I believe you will enjoy my exhibit of “America the Beautiful.” — Mike DiRenzo
