Escape down an untraveled path; wander through a misty forest; follow the quiet journey of a river. In these ways, Joseph Donovan’s photography allows you to find solace from the busy world around you and reconnect to the mysterious beauty of nature’s landscapes. Vivid contrasts and intricate textures create nuanced moods that invite you to go inward, finding a soulful reprieve in which to appreciate the beauty of the natural world.

Santa Barbara Independent Review – Solace: The Photography of Joseph Donovan

July, 2014

“In these powerful black-and-white nature photographs, Joseph Donovan employs techniques derived from landscape painting to enhance the viewer’s feeling of looking into, rather than merely at, the spaces he documents. In the process, he adds a further dimension of time and yearning to the crystal-clear deep focus that has become his trademark. With highly evocative titles such as 'Tell Me No Lies,' 'Together,' and 'On the Hill, a Palace,' Donovan seeks to unlock a train of association in the viewer’s mind and to lead him or her further into the visionary worlds these images reveal. For example, in 'Together,' a gnarled tree stands guard over an outcropping of rock. The hills in the background, sheathed in a milky white layer of mist, provide ideal contrast for the heightened presence of the intensely variegated surfaces of leaf, bark, lichen, and rock. What a fascinating couple these two make — of course, they are 'Together'...” Read more of Charles Donelan's review of Donovan's work online or by PDF.
