Oregon Law displays photography of Eugene’s Greg Vaughn
Thirty nature photographs adorn school's second-floor gallery
The work of local Eugene photographer Greg Vaughn currently is on display at the University of Oregon School of Law, in the second-floor gallery.
“Nature of the Northwest” features thirty photographs highlighting the natural wonders and beauty of Oregon and Washington. The exhibit runs through December 16.
“Oregon and Washington are full of the most incredible natural wonders,” Vaughn remarked. “In these photos I’ve tried to capture the spirit and beauty of the places I’ve been.”
For more than 20 years, Vaughn said he has wandered over mountains, valleys and coasts, through forests, deserts and canyons, around cities and small towns, and down back roads and into the backcountry of the Pacific Northwest.
Vaughn’s photography is concentrated on travel and the natural world. He is the sole or principal photographer for several guidebooks in the Compass American Guides series published by Fodor’s. Vaughn’s guidebook, Photographing Oregon, won the Independent Book Publishers Association Ben Franklin Award for best travel book in 2010. He currently is working on a similar book about Washington State due out in early 2012.
A reception for Vaughn and his work will take place from 5 to 7 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 20, at the Knight Law Center, 1515 Agate St. in Eugene.
