Known for his conservation photography work in New England’s wild places, Jerry Monkman has spent the last 20 years artfully documenting the mountains, forests, and coastlines that define the region. Staying true to his mission of “promoting ecological awareness through creative photography,” his images have contributed to raising awareness and funds to protect a diverse collection of wild places, from a small Connecticut trout stream not far from New York City, to New Hampshire’s Great Bay, to Maine’s Katahdin Lake near Baxter State Park. His work has appeared in magazines, books, and calendars around the world, including Outdoor Photographer, National Geographic Adventure, Audubon, and the New York Times. With his wife Marcy, Jerry has co-author several books about the region, and his most recent book, The AMC Guide to Outdoor Digital Photography, was awarded a 2012 National Outdoor Book Award. Jerry recently produced and directed his first feature length documentary film, The Power of Place. To see more of Jerry’s work, visit his website: www.ecophotography.com.
