Wild. Winged. Wetland wonders: “Birds of Paradise” photography exhibit July 3 – Aug. 25 at Gadsden Arts Center

View Florida’s captivating wetland fowl up close as they are in nature – no backcountry trek required

Jim Miller’s photographs of birds from Florida’s wetlands are exquisite.

The images are beautifully composed in value and form, capturing bird life as some of the most elegant designs found in nature, while offering a close-up view of the natural lives of these elegant creatures.

Miller’s “Birds of Paradise” photographs will be on view at the Gadsden Arts Center and Museum’s Munroe Family Community Gallery July 3 – Aug. 25.

Nearly 20 years ago Jim Miller first experienced the power of high quality super-telephoto lenses and technically sophisticated cameras.

The super-telephoto lens allows for photographing subjects like Miller’s birds, previously difficult to study up close and in fine detail, at great distances with sharp clarity.

In these images, the artist inserts himself within the birds’ private spaces without notice, offering a close-up experience with wild Florida birds in their natural habitats.

Jim Miller has been working in photography for more than 20 years, and his work has been showcased in multiple juried exhibitions throughout Florida and Georgia.

His photographs have also been featured in On View magazine and Photographer in Focus.

The Gadsden Arts Center and Museum is located in historic downtown Quincy, on the courthouse square. Five galleries and the Fletcher Museum Shop are open 10 a.m. – 5 p.m., Tuesday through Saturday.
