I am thrilled to announce my first Canadian Exhibiton ‘Anthropocene – Vanishing Landscapes’ in my hometown of Vancouver, BC, opening with a Vernissage on October 12, 2018. I hope you will join me as I share stories and show photos of my expeditions in the remotest regions of the planet; from the Arctic and Antarctic to the Swiss Alpine regions, I will be showing the incredible beauty and diversity that I am so privileged to see in these fragile ecosystems.
Please join us at Back Gallery Project on October 12, 2018 between 5-8pm for the Vernissage of Anthropocene –Vanishing Landscapes where Dawna Mueller will be showing her photos taken from the worlds remotest polar and alpine regions and taking about her expeditions to these fragile eco-systems at risk. The selection of photos show the common theme of landscapes changing due to increasing temperatures in unstable environments. Global warming is having extremely adverse effects in the polar regions as well as the Alpine and mountainous regions worldwide: glaciers are in retreat, ice caps are breaking apart in unprecedented sizes and numbers, Arctic ice is melting earlier every spring and every summer for the last three years has had documented record high temperatures. Entire species are at risk as the Polar Regions loose their ice, and the planet is at risk of rising oceans, increasingly volatile and destructive weather patterns, spreading disease and displacing communities. In this exhibition, Dawna shows the evidence and haunting beauty of what she has seen in these landscapes and environments with the intention of creating a dialogue to create social change and awareness. We hope to see you there.
My joint Exhibition with hitschphotography.com is showing at konigs in St. Gallen and is on until December 8,2018. We are showing a selection of our Alpine and Polar photos taken over the last year and are thrilled to be partnering with konigs to show in a place that understands light. Konigs is a lighting mecca with endless possibilities to create the lighting and atmosphere of your dreams. Come on down and enjoy the show.
I am excited to announce the Vernissage of my joint Exhibition Licht Gestalten together with Hitsch Photography where we will show a selection of our photos taken in the Swiss Alpine region as well as from the Antarctic. As conservation photographers, we are often on Expeditions in remote locations photographing and documenting the changing nature of the landscape due to climate change. We want to show the beauty of what we see and create dialogues about what is going on in these locations where glaciers are retreating, ice is melting, temperatures are at record highs and entire species are on the verge of extinction. Please join us on May 26 for our Vernissage where I will be talking about our journeys and work in these pristine environments that are rapidly changing.
It's the last week of my first solo photography exhibition "summits" at StileVivo Gallery in Männedorf. The two month long show will conclude with an Apero Finissage this upcoming Friday, March 24th from 6-8 p at StileVivo. I will be hosting a book signing during the event. I look forward to seeing you there.
'Summits' opens with a Vernissage on January, 21st (10:00-16:00) at the StileVivo Gallery, Kugelgasse 14 in Maennedorf. Dawna will be present at the Vernissage on Saturday, January 21 to discuss the last 12 months in making the pictures. There is a selection of 18 black and white mountain images taken in Switzerland and the Dolomites in Italy. Dawna is a landscape photographer specialising in Alpine and extreme regions. Her adventures have included repelling into glaciers and hanging out of helicopters in the pursuit of the image she wants to capture. Join her at the Vernissage to enjoy the images and hear the stories behind her pictures. The exhibition will be open until March, 24th, from Tuesdays to Fridays (10:00-12:00 and 14:00-18:00) and on Saturdays (10:00 to 16:00).
