Andy at Hawk Mountain

 

Andy Smith 

I have lived in the Darby Creek Watershed in the town of Devon, Pennsylvania,  for 29 years.   After completing a 35 year career as a campus minister and then, Director of Social Responsibility in Investments for the American Baptist Churches USA, I consulted with corporations on building a sustainable society and taught ethics and philosophy at Neumann College.   I have also taught sustainability in the Masters in Business Administration program at Penn State Great Valley for several years and will be teaching an online course in sustainability at Farleigh Dickinson University this fall (2016). My formal education includes an AB in history from Duke University, an STB from Harvard University and a PHD in Religion and Society from Drew University.

I have had a passion for photography for many years, developing a large portfolio of slides from around the world during my travels for the church.  In the last several years my interest in bringing people in touch with the natural world has led to a focus on nature photography, with a particular emphasis on birds and wildlife.     

My award-winning photography has been exhibited at Neumann College, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, Drew University, the Mill Grove Audubon Center, Central Baptist Church in Wayne Pennsylvania, the Bryn Mawr Presbyterian Church, the Ocean City Arts Center in New Jersey, the Palmyra Cove Nature Center in New Jersey and the John Heinz National Wildlife Refuge at Tinicum. Images are presently available for sale at galleries and shops in New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Maine and at www.AndySmithPhotography.com.  I also regularly have a booth at numerous fine art and craft shows in the Mid-Atlantic region.  See Shows 2016 for a current schedule and history.

Mission
To make and distribute photographic images portraying the art of nature for spaces where people can appreciate the beauty, diversity and sacredness of the natural world, understand that we are part of this intricate  web of life and act in ways to restore and protect our home, the earth.
Major emphasis will be placed on producing images that help people connect with their local eco-region.

 

Artist Statement
We human beings are part of an incredibly diverse and interesting universe -- our Mother, the source of our creative energy, and our home. An evolving process that began over 13 billion years ago brought us to today. The latest lessons of quantum physics teach that the entire universe is an implicate order within us while also a vast explicate order that includes everything.  In other words we are who we are because we are related to everything that is, and that is reflected in the core of our being.    Yet immersed in the isolation of our own lives we often do not appreciate the beautiful creation around us that is part of who we are. My photography provides a small window into the vast array of this beauty, an opportunity to observe and consider, to contemplate and learn from the things and creatures that surround us, a moment of spiritual connection to one another and to that being observed. These images reflect my reality that is interrelated with everything in the universe and therefore touches your reality. 

My reality starts in my local ecological home, the Delaware River Watershed. This vast region stretching across portions of five states - Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York, Delaware and Maryland - includes the Delaware River itself and all the tributaries that flow into it with their surrounding drainage areas . The territory encompasses an amazing array of beauty, much of it in preserved natural areas like national, state and local parks or wild and scenic rivers. We do not have to travel great distances to find this beauty. It is in our backyard and next door in adjacent ecological regions like the southern coast of New Jersey. Much of my photography focuses on images from these areas.
