“The greatest artists, the most eternal artists, the ones that really have longevity, are the ones that were dedicated and devoted to their work and gave parts of themselves,” says Geoffrey Berliner, executive director of the nonprofit Penumbra Foundation (@penumbrafoundation). “Great art stems from great tension and great investigation and great suffrage and great living.” The New York City organization is on a mission to bring together the art and science of photography through programs and workshops for aspiring and veteran photographers, alike.
In the digital age of point, click, delete, repeat, he believes it’s more important than ever to preserve and explore archaic formats like tintype, one of the earliest (and most complicated) photo processes made popular in the 1860s, as a means to develop voice and creative literacy in the next generation’s great artists. Great art, Geoffrey believes, starts with story: “When you teach a kid comprehensive storytelling, that one kid can go forth and create work that can make a huge impact in the world.”

This past summer I traveled to the Dead Sea in Israel, and was captivated by this amazing landscape. Taking in this serene scene of the beautiful blue salt water in contrast with the algae filled green pond was a bittersweet moment as I learned that this was created by the surface shrinking 30% in the last 20 years. The Dead Sea has been shrinking at a rate of more than one meter per year causing major sink holes and heavily receding sea shores. Major parts of the Dead Sea are now closed to the public due to some of these environmental changes. To see more images like this follow me @stephenwilkes.
