About the Photographer
Charles Gurche has worked with the landscape for over 30 years, mainly using
large-format equipment. His images are widely recognized for their artistic and
personal quality. Gurche has received awards from the Roger Tory Peterson
Institute of Natural History, the Society of Professional Journalists, Nature’s Best
International Photography Awards, and the Washington State Governor’s Book
Award. His images have appeared in hundreds of publications, including Audubon,
National Geographic, Smithsonian, and National Park Service books and magazines.
Gurche’s first large-format book: Missouri, Images of Nature, was published in his
second professional year. Since that time, Gurche has published 14 large-format
photography showcase books and exhibits in private and public spaces worldwide.
“I’ve been lucky to have spent many days wandering through and looking at this
glorious world. Sometimes the connections with a place or a moment are so
meaningful and potent; I only hope to convey a bit of that passion in a photograph.”
