Gregg Albracht, 2016 Spotlight Artist
Fine art photographer Gregg Albracht’s passion for photography started in the summer of 1969 when he saw a portfolio of fine art photos. “I was mesmerized by their richness and beauty,” Albracht says. “It was in that moment that photography took a hold of me and I discovered what was to become my life’s work.” Starting decades ago with black-and-white images, he has evolved his craft over time and, today, uses all means of photographic technology to adapt his images for his new Dream Series. Many of Albracht’s photographs are considered a window to the west—a timeless place where human beings live in deep connection to the animals and the land. He’s not after a uniform look, which would tie his photographs together, but rather approaches each new image as if it’s the first he’s ever done.
Albracht has had more than 80 shows all over the west and has won more than 25 regional and national awards. His photographs are exhibited in museum collections throughout the country including collections in Montana, Santa Fe, Nebraska, and Washington, D.C.
A much-anticipated programming element of Redwood Media Group’s other art shows, the Spotlight Artist Program is being featured for the very first time at Artexpo New York in 2016 and will continue to be a highlight at the show in future years. Gregg Albracht is one of four esteemed artists selected for this year’s Spotlight Artist Program.
