Seeing the world through the eyes of John Denver, one might get a great look at Snowmass Ski Area under a rising moon, from across Brush Creek Valley, or from a hot air balloon against a lovely blue sky at Snowmass Balloon event. They are among the snaps clicked in Denver’s photography that would be on showcase at the Anderson Ranch Arts Center in an exhibit which opens on 10th October.
Anderson Ranch event includes a choice of photographs Denver’s estate very recently spread out to the public for sale. It starts with a reception at 5 pm.
Anderson Ranch’s artistic director of photography Andrea Wallace told that the ranch is very delighted to show his work because he is known all across the world for his singing talent, but people might not be aware that all his artistic exercise was even broader, and drawn-out to photography as well as visual arts.
Well, it turns out that the talents of Snowmass-based Windstar Foundation founder and singer went beyond music. 7S Management’s Amy Abrams told that he was really a great photographer. He was seeing what the camera could do and how he could capture the world across him.
Unsurprisingly, the snaps include some detailed scenes in the local mountains, like a bunch on horseback in the backcountry, close-ups of a hawk, aspen trees, a coyote, cowboys and their horses at sunset. All his works from all his travels across the world concentrates more on people – starting from streets of Asia and Europe to snaps of Apollo 11 astronauts’ parade in Manhattan.
