More information about the speakers:
- Nancy de Flon is an award-winning photographer of editorial and fine-art scenic images, primarily in the Hudson Valley and Catskills, Rhode Island, the Adirondacks, and New Hampshire, as well as Sweden. Her photography strives to capture the beauty or the drama of a place, whether via a landscape or seascape, historical architecture, or the delicacy of the inside of a flower. Nany was studied with Jim Zuckerman, Rob Sheppard, William Neill, and other master photographers. Her artistic inspirations also include the 19th-century Hudson RIver artists, above all Thomas Cole and Asher Durand.
- Anton de Flon is a largely self-taught photographer who was inspired at an early age to use photography to bring his experiences of nature home for others to see. His goal is to create photos that give a sense of place, communicate a sense of wonder about the natural world, and elicit an emotional response from the viewer. Anton enjoys portraying the mountain regions of the Northeast, especially the Catskils and Adirondacks and the White Mountains of New Hampshire.
