Juror: William Neill
It is no wonder William Neill has developed a deep, spiritual connection with nature, being a resident of the Yosemite National Park area since 1977. His award-winning photography has been widely collected and exhibited in museums and galleries, including the Museum of Fine Art Boston, Santa Barbara Museum of Art, The Vernon Collection, and The Polaroid Collection.
His work has been published in several books: Rachel Carson's The Sense of Wonder, and John Fowles' The Tree. Chronicle Books published his photographs of natural patterns in By Nature's Design (1993), and featured his images in The Color of Nature (1996). The Yosemite Association published a major portfolio of Neill's Yosemite photographs entitled "Yosemite: The Promise of Wildness" (1994). A retrospective collection of his finest landscape photographs was published by Bulfinch Press/Little, Brown & Co, in 1997, entitled Landscapes of the Spirit.
Several periodicals have published his images, including: National Geographic, Smithsonian, Natural History, National Wildlife, Conde Nast Traveler, Gentlemen's Quarterly, Travel and Leisure, Wilderness, Sunset, Sierra and Outside magazines. Neill writes a monthly column "On Landscape", for Outdoor Photographer magazine. Feature articles have appeared in Life, Camera and Darkroom, Outdoor Photographer and Communication Arts (from whom he has also received five Awards of Excellence).
Neill's corporate clients include: Sony Japan, Bayer Corporation, Canon USA, Nike, Nikon, The Nature Company, and Sony Music/Classical.
Perhaps most important to the task of Jurying Rare Earth, is Neill's extensive experience in close observation of others' work - he has been an instructor of photography for 32 years. Mr. Neill is looking forward to the opportunity to see your work, for the purpose of curating what will be an awe-inspiring exhibition of landscape photographs.
