David Lee Myers - Quiet Intensities

Quiet Intensities. Sometimes I just stop and gaze into the world, enjoying a small section of view. It’s a time-honored photographic pleasure. For this exhibit, I’ve focused especially on the play of water, sky, and light. Perhaps my first experience finding such compositions was exploring framing scenes through the French windows of a childhood home—just looking, no camera then. Another influence is abstract painting, with the design here carried out just by eye.

Myers has enjoyed exhibiting at the Columbia River Maritime Museum, Clatsop Community College, RiverSea, AVA, Studio Eleven, Skamokawa’s Redmen Hall, and elsewhere throughout the Northwest.

David Lee Myers went to the University of California at Berkeley expecting to become a scientist, and left with an abiding love and commitment to fine arts photography. In 1970 he participated in the great, romantic “back to the land” movement, flinging himself first into a very rural Columbia Pacific valley, and then settling in the big city of Astoria. He works as an independent artist and teaches photography for Clatsop Community College.
