Show: The Grand Canyon
One of the seven wonders of the natural world, the Grand Canyon is truly a remarkable site to behold. The colors of the canyon are diverse and beautiful. But when color is removed the entire feel of the canyon is transformed. Shapes, form and tones take center stage. This collection of images by black and white photographer, Darcie Sternenberg, is meant to offer a unique view of a familiar place.
