Photography by Peter Hines

Exhibit runs from May 2–June 13

ARTIST STATEMENT

At the Salt Lake City Public Library's Anderson-Foothill Branch, fine art photographer Peter Hines shares an exhibit of his unique photographic perspective on the extraordinary beauty and sheer stunning geologic power of the tidewater glaciers of Southeast Alaska. These glaciers have given birth to the region’s “Sculpted Landscape”. The photos in the exhibit illustrate how massive rivers of slow moving glacial ice have acted as nature’s chisel and hammer carving from the Earth’s pristine mantle the rugged, sharp, and sheer mountainous landscapes that define the region’s Coastal Mountain range we witness today. It also tells the story of the glaciers' birth in the high mountainous country of the Juneau and Glacier Bay ice fields and follows their path to the beginning of their demise as the bergs calve into the tidewater sea. It concludes the visual story by focusing on the final destination of the glacial blue ice, which, after calving into the sea, may become “beached” by tidal action. There it examines the completion of the glacial cycle by showing the stark and extraordinary beauty of the ancient beached icebergs themselves. Sculpted by the millennia forces of nature, these beached iceberg remnants make for sublime artistic subject matter, as they sparkle and melt under the warm sun disappearing into the very landscape that they once helped to sculpt and form.

ARTIST BIO

Peter Hines is a Utah fine art photographer based in Salt Lake City. He worked for nearly 30 years as a mechanical engineer until a 40 foot fall in a rock climbing accident that changed his life. In the aftermath and following miraculous recovery from this accident he decided to redirect his life from working in an cubical designing widgets to the pursuit of his artistic and photographic dreams harbored since his youth. Since making that decision he has worked as a photographer guide in Alaska, led photographic workshops, won numerous awards for his photo art, and started a fine art photography business. He brings a unique blend to his photography of technical understanding/knowhow and artistic vision fueled by his deep reverence and passion for nature. He considers himself as much an artist as a photographer and compares his camera to a paintbrush with light as the medium of expression. He is eternally grateful that he has recovered enough from his accident to still hike and ski in the Wasatch Mountains he loves and calls home. You may even find him there seeking artistic inspiration in the splendid and divine light of a breaking mountain storm. His mission is to “celebrate the extraordinary and sublime moment through the art and technique of photography”. You can find his work at www.taooflightphoto.com as well as on Facebook and Instagram

About the library

The pleasing design of the Anderson-Foothill Branch has two unique elements as part of its plan. The first is a passive solar energy design that includes earth berming, window placement for solar heating, and zone supplemental heating/cooling. The second element of this 14,900 square foot community library built in 1985, expanded in 1992 and in 2002, is a modular design.

The Anderson-Foothill Branch has a meeting room available for public use with tables, chairs, and a projector screen. The Anderson-Foothill Branch's outdoor amphitheater is a popular location for summer concerts. Free parking is available to the north and south of the building, and free wi-fi access is provided throughout the library.
