Gordon is an award-winning fine art landscape photographer best known for his black and white ‘Desert’series which, says Broughton Quarterly, portrays “stunning ethereal beauty from terrain where others see only a bleak landscape.” A lifelong student of nature and wilderness, Michael’s intimate relationship with the natural world yields quiet images of depth and discovery.

Jung-Te Hwang, Artist, Photographer, Resident Adviser

Jung-Te Hwang was born in Taiwan in 1936 and has resided in New York for the past 30 years. Currently an amateur photographer, he previously worked in the business of real estate development and construction management. The founder of Hwang Gallery, Hwang was the honorary president of the Taiwan Photography Association in Greater New York and has dabbled in photography for over 50 years, capturing various subjects and deeds through the lens of his camera. He often travels to remote and exotic locations, capturing each region’s unique culture, relics, and beautiful landscapes.

Although Hwang is a lover of landscape photography and a virtuoso of close-up photography, his interest has recently veered towards the abstract as he challenges and expands his photography skills. His pictures make use of unique perspectives to create beautiful and extraordinary masterpieces. His distinctive point-of-view in photography allows viewers to truly immerse themselves in the pictures and fully experience the sheer magnitude and magnificence of the image. It is due to this appreciation of how utterly original his pieces are in comparison to the average photographer that people are instinctively drawn towards his photography.

紐約【黃氏藝廊】創辦人黃榮德 (Jung-Te Hwang) 先生 1936年出生於台灣,現定居紐約。曾擔任紐約地區台灣攝影學會會長,投入攝影50餘年,作品得獎無數,並每年舉辦攝影作品個展,例如【白沙之冬】、【科羅拉多高原】、【印度之旅】、【大地的讚禮】、【青山綠水。人間古厝】、【大霧山之秋】、【衝浪】、【肯亞大遷移】、【詩幻幽境】等。他經常旅遊世界各地並深入偏僻尚待開發的地方,拍攝當地的人文風俗習慣、古蹟及幽美風光,在其豐富的人生歲月中,記錄了無數的事蹟及見證。

喜好自然風景攝影及景觀特寫的黃榮德藝術根基深厚,近幾年來對抽象及具有創意的攝影尤感興趣,是對攝影藝術的一種嘗試及突破。他的攝影題材涉獵廣泛,包括了自然風景、野生動物、飛鳥、運動、太空、人文等。其照片在構圖上別出心裁,構思上常常另闢蹊徑,時而孤寂頹廢、時而奔放寫意,心思細敏讓人耳目一新。其意境清新優美常使觀賞者在看他的作品時別具想像空間,能夠感知到其作品傳達的宏偉大器或恬適從容的寧靜之美,構思、意境、色彩等方面都給人與眾不同的獨特美感和藝術享受。其作品以其獨特的藝術價值常被多人收藏,是一位難得的新潮攝影藝術家。

除了攝影創作之外,黃榮德也致力於攝影藝術的推廣與傳承,時常領團到各地拍照,並舉辦講座、課程等教學活動,尤其擅長特殊攝影如「太空」、「星軌」等特殊的專題 講座 。
