E101 Gallery presents Dusty Wynne, Photographer - His Minds Eye. Dec 19 - Jan 22, 2015

 The Mind’s Eye of Dusty Wynne

Presented by the E101 Gallery at E101 Mainstreet Association hosts Photographer, Dusty Wynne, December 19 – Jan 23, 2015

Dusty Wynne, a San Diego north county native is passionate about sharing the beauty of this area through photography. He awes at the diversity of wildlife that San Diego County has to offer, along with its history and local landmarks.  Dusty has been capturing images through photography for over 30 years, and was fortunate enough to travel with medical teams to Cambodia and photograph their work and ministry to some of the poorest people in world.  His photos were published in Calvary Chapel Magazine 2009 “Cambodia - from Killing Fields to Harvest Fields”

Currently a student at Palomar College for photography, he loves shooting digital. “The digital darkroom gives me the opportunity to experiment with my images and give them an interesting new artistic twist”, states Dusty.
His work is versatile and broad in scope.  He has an incredible eye for photographing what most people do not see. 

The exhibit will be up from December 19th until January 22, 2015 at the E101 Gallery located at the E101 Mainstreet Association at 818 South Coast Highway 101, Encinitas, CA  92024.  Stop in and view the art of Dusty Wynne.
