"Spirits of the Wild," a collection of wildlife and landscape photography by Larry Calof of Atherton, is featured in June at the Portola Art Gallery in Menlo Park's Allied Arts Guild.
A reception for Mr. Calof will be held from 1 to 4 p.m. Saturday, June 14.
Mr. Calof spent 30 years doing corporate and securities law, before rediscovering his passion for photography. "I love using natural light and high-quality digital equipment to capture wildlife and landscape images in distinct manners that illuminate their unique characteristics," Mr. Calof says. "In my wildlife photography, I try to find an emotional connection with my subjects. In my landscape photography, I look for light and angles to add magical or mystical perspectives to my images."
The exhibit features images printed on aluminum, as well as pieces printed on traditional archival paper.
Mr. Calof has exhibited and received awards at various local juried art shows, including Filoli, Pacific Art League, and the California Land Trust Gallery. He was the grand prize winner in Cowboys & Indians magazine's national photography contest in 2006.
