Exploring Remote: Bryan Cook, Art 365

Bryan Cook, Oklahoma City
Art 365 Project: Give Nature Time

Cook received one of five Art 365 awards of $12,000 to produce new artwork for the Art 365 exhibition.

Exploring remote portions of our National Parks and wilderness areas, Cook presents large scale photographs of these pristine locations. He seeks to raise awareness of these areas, so inciting a love affair which can lead to further preservation efforts.

Balancing the difficulty of hiking to these remote areas – encountering physical, mental and emotional challenges – with a love of the land, Cook captures places and moments that most will never experience with their own eyes.
