Photographic Masterworks Collections
James Valentine has focused his large format cameras on light being the messenger of life for over five decades. Each ecosystem has its own landscape conservation message to share in an infinite array of light intensities. The biodiversity of our planet provides us with clean water and air.
These fine art photograph collections explore ecosystems from Predido Key in the Florida Pan Handle proceeding half way to Cuba in the Marquesas Keys. The compendium includes over 21,000 images of Natural History and Cultural History significance.
North Carolina Collection
The collection represents over 7000 large and medium format images assembled over twenty years celebrating North Carolina’s incredible biodiversity. You travel over 600 miles from the Blue Ridge Mountains down untamed rivers, pristine coves, placid swamps with your destiny being the crystalline beaches along Cape Hatteras and the Outer Banks.
Islands In the Sky Collection
The biodiversity of our planet is in peril especially some of the most fragile habitats. Incredible species are disappearing in front of our eyes. Collectively for over sixty years and 33+ extensive expeditions our scientific, educational, promotional and photographic team is concluding the necessary research to produce the most definitive book ever published on the Lost World tropical region of the planet that represents the Guyana Shield.
Arts & Ecology in the Americas
The Arts and Ecology in the Americas program primary objective is to research, identify and support leading conservation artisans, environmental educators and musicians throughout the Americas from the Arctic / Amazon / Antarctica. This one of a kind program brings together leaders in each of the creative fields who are collectively able to play a major role in the understanding of biodiversity and conservation of “critical habitat” areas in the Americas.
