Resonance of Stone
Soulcatcher Studio is pleased to present the world premiere exhibition of a new body of work by renowned photographer Craig Blacklock: Resonance of Stone.
Set in the American Southwest, Resonance of Stone is a fusion of American landscape photography and the human form, creating a visual and emotional impact moving beyond either genre alone. Initiated in 2013, this ongoing project will culminate in a book and traveling exhibition similar to Blacklock’s award-winning body of work, A Voice Within—The Lake Superior Nudes.
Over 40 years of photographing Lake Superior and the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness, Craig Blacklock has gained an international reputation for his inspiring landscapes and technical virtuosity. Photographer/author of seventeen books, Craig is regularly featured in magazines such as American Photo, Fine Art Photo, Shutterbug and Outdoor Photographer. His original prints are in museums, private collections, and health care facilities throughout the United States. Craig’s background in over 30 years of working in large format shows in his digital images, with precise, exquisite compositions and hyper-real clarity.
Craig is the son of pioneering color nature photographer, Les Blacklock (1921-1995). Craig had the opportunity to accompany his father on photography trips from the time he was three. By age 5, Craig was making his own images along side his dad. Craig’s early career found him traveling over much of the nation, but in 1984 he decided to dedicate most of the rest of his career to photographing the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness (BWCAW) and Lake Superior. From 1996 through 2002 he photographed his wife, Honey Blacklock for their book, A Voice Within — The Lake Superior Nudes. This work was featured in American Photo magazine and won an IPPY award as the best photo book by an independent publisher from 1327 publishers around the world.
Craig has taught photography workshops since 1982 for venues such as Palm Beach Photographic Centre, providing guidance in capture, editing and printing. He personally makes all of his own prints in his gallery in Moose Lake, Minnesota. In November, 2014, Craig was nearly killed, suffering 3rd degree burns in a fire. His hands received the worst burns, and while he has regained his functionality, he still finds it painful to work in cold weather. A friend suggested that while he finished healing, he take a break from the cold waters of Superior. Thus began his journey toward this and other more recent bodies of work.
