"Interstate Blur" by David Lorenz Winston

SOAR is delighted to announce the new listing of renowned photographer David Lorenz Winston. You can now find his contact information and links to his website, blogs and networking services in the Photography category. We are truly grateful for his support, a welcome addition to our growing online “portrait” of the Southern Oregon arts & culture community.

David Lorenz Winston is an award winning photographer, internationally known for his nature photography. His crisp winter landscapes and stunning images of trees enhance art and photography collections around the world. He is best known for “Solitude,” his image of a zigzag fence and tree taken after a fresh coat of snow in the western suburbs of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. To date, more than 250,000 posters of this quietly tranquil image have been published.


“My imagery is about discovery. It takes me to places I have never been, places that free me from the pressures of a clock driven world, places that heal. I’m most excited when in tune with the underlying flow and energy of the ordinary. I seek to reveal the essence of a moment or place gone unnoticed. I love showing things in new ways, using the elements of surprise, mystery and playfulness, fused with design and movement.”

~David Lorenz Winston
