The work of Enumclaw photographer Steve Le Penske will be featured through March 4 in the city of Enumclaw’s Gallery 2014. The theme for the display is “Relentless Pursuit.”
“Since retiring I have been free to pursue my passion for nature photography,” Le Penske wrote in an artist’s biography. “I continue to be inspired by the beauty of the natural world and am motivated by the challenge of capturing it. It is my hope that the viewer will also be inspired and realize that the beauty they are experiencing is fragile and increasingly dependent on mankind’s stewardship and the practice of sustainability.”
Le Penske’s work has received numerous awards and been published in a variety of magazines, at commercial venues and in juried art shows throughout the puget Sound region.
“I began shooting film and endeavored to capture the image as I witnessed it without any post processing,” Le Penske wrote. “Although I have recently switched from film to digital I still desire to capture the image and present it with a minimum amount of post processing.”
Gallery 2014 is in council chambers at Enumclaw City Hall,1339 Griffin Ave. Hours for the exhibition space are 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, except national holidays.
