Howie Garber is a professional photographer based out of Salt Lake City. He focuses on nature, wildlife, and landscape photography. You can see more of his images and his extensive list of experience on his website: http://www.wanderlustimages.com/ Garber has a strong interest in showing the beauty of the nearby Wasatch Range and the devastation of Salt Lake City’s air pollution. He has shared several photographs with us to raise awareness of the issue.
Unfortunately, the state is close to approving a large expansion of Holly Refinery, adjacent to downtown. Garber feels that recreation areas being next to power plants may become the new norm. Let’s pay attention to what we’re breathing, and the beauty hidden behind it. Check your daily air quality on airnow.gov.
Howie Garber has published a book of his spectacular photography, Utah’s Wasatch Range: Four Season Refuge. You can also find the book on Facebook.
Garber will be discussing his book and local conservation issues at the University of Utah in March. The Book Signing, Lecture, and Slide Show will be from 12:15 – 1:15, in room 106 of the S.J. Quinney College of Law, on March 28. More information is here.
