This post comes from LensFlare 35, a weekly show created by Dave Warner. Below you can watch a multimedia interview with Conservation Photographer Daniel Beltrá whose images are part of the next exhibition at the FiftyCrows Gallery opening on Thursday January 7th. Daniel is a Spanish photographer based in Seattle. His images are often shot from aerial views producing a painterly effect of textured blocks of color. Abstract and even surreal, Beltrá believes his photographs will help catalyze change in ideas and action regarding environmental preservation. He has documented several expeditions by Greenpeace to the Brazilian Amazon, the Arctic, the Southern Oceans and the Patagonian Ice Fields, among many others.
This year, Daniel was awarded the Prince’s Rainforest Project from the Sony World Photography Awards. The award, granted by Prince Charles, sent Daniel for three months to the Congo, Amazon and Indonesian rainforests to create photos for a book, website and traveling exhibition about the perilous fate of the world’s rainforests.
