About The Event

Jim began exhibiting in 2010 here at the Forum and Pomona’s SCA gallery.  His stroke in 2016, and a macro lens lent by a friend, afforded a new relationship with nature and photography – as restorative rehab. The ‘Closer Looks’ Project brings small details in nature up to human size, on 40″ square prints. “I hope it will help folks relax and immerse in the magnificence of each living thing, no matter how small.”  ‘Closer Looks 4’ continues this intimate “face to face” conversation between person and plant, in hopes of increasing empathy and activism toward preserving these unique plants, their California habitats, and the many kinds of sustenance they provide to all life forms.

“Over time, I’ve learned how rare and precious our California plants are. We’re a biodiversity hotspot. These plants provide nourishing habitats for millions of species. Plant life keeps US alive. What are we doing for them?”
