Harrison Owen has been a photographer for forty odd years. He has photographed the Kpelle people in West Africa, Carnivals in Pennsylvania, and Lobstermen on Long Island Sound. Now he lives in Potomac, Maryland with his wife, Ethelyn and cat, Curtis, just a short walk from the C&O Canal and the Potomac River. In the summer, you will find them all on the coast of Maine in the beautiful town of Camden. Given any reasonable excuse Harrison has a camera in hand.
In terms of subject matter, anything is fair game, but Harrison finds himself particularly drawn to the shifting patterns of light, shadow, and color which give texture and depth to the world as he sees it. Water, still and flowing, is a special treat when it fractures and plays with reflected images. Also the little things; a lichen on a rock, a young plant emerging from a log, a forgotten shell, or fallen leaf catch his eye as the special, and often un-noticed, accent that creates the sense of place and beauty.
