Roots Against the Sky presents David Whitmire Hearst Jr's recent explorations of the natural world. In these photographs, Hearst utilizes the tools available in the digital process to produce highly expressive prints using a palate of sublime color or of heightened monochrome rendition. The prints depict the exquisite color and patterns found in the natural world, the tangle and density of natural forms, and, at times, the imposition of nature on the manmade.

Organized by UCR/California Museum of Photography, and curated by Jonathan Green, Executive Director, UCR ARTSblock

The exhibition is accompanied by a 96-page catalog.
