Doug Beasley explores the spiritual aspects of people and places, and how the sacred is recognized and expressed in everyday life. He hopes that his photographs act as prayer-like offerings meant as a departure point for the viewer’s own visual or spiritual journey. Much of his personal work, including “Sacred Sites of the Lakota,” “Disappearing Green Space,” “Sacred Places,” and “Earth Meets Spirit,” are supported by grants and commissions, and have been widely exhibited and collected. His work is featured in numerous magazines, and published and exhibited internationally. This is Doug’s ninth year teaching at the Workshops. His Web site address is www.douglasbeasley.com.
