Landscape photographer Tim Truby’s upcoming exhibition, “A Window on the Eternal: Recent Images of Grand Teton and Yellowstone” will be at Arches Gallery for December’s First Thursday Art Walk in San Pedro.

Barthes concept, that photography captures time past, is the driving idea for this show. The images juxtapose Wyoming’s decaying 18th and early 19th century ranch structures against one of the oldest landscapes on earth, the 2.7 billion year old Teton Range. The landscapes all share a rich autumn palette that highlights the texture of that simpler life against the spare backdrop of ancient mountains and high plains.
Truby’s investigation of the high plains landscape is pulled together with formal composition, painterly style references and heightened visual depth, an approach that’s been called “plein air photography.” This immersive visual realism puts the viewer into that world, that long ago time.
Arches Gallery will provide live music and finger food. The gallery space will also include the work of other landscape photographers. The Art Walk has 30+ galleries participating, all within a few blocks, with live music, restaurants and food trucks galore.
Tim Truby has published two landscape photography books and has shown at various LA galleries and juried shows. He was also a First Place winner at the 2019 OC Fair Photo Contest.
