Barry Fellman’s Mangrove Coast
Fellman’s photos seduce you, inviting you closer to understand them. As you approach, basic notions of scale and distance remain a mystery until your nose is nearly pressed against the surface.

HOMESTEAD, Fla. --- The work of award-winning photographer Barry Fellman is featured in the Dante Fascell Visitor Center Gallery from August 4 through October 15, 2017. The Mangrove Coast exhibit features photographs that explore the unexpected beauty, rhythms and patterns of spectacular mangrove habitats. The exhibit is free and open daily from 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. An opening reception will take place from 1 - 3 p.m. this Sunday, August 6, 2017.
 
“The elements that make up the zone between sea and land are rich and diverse,” said Fellman. “They challenge me to reinvent the way I see, much as they reinvent the way they assemble themselves after each change in tide.”
 
Barry Fellman is director of the Miami Center for Visual Communication. His photographs are exhibited at museums and public venues around the nation.
 
Mangrove Coast is part of the community artists program, since 1997 it has been an outlet for the works of artists inspired by the beauty of the park. It is supported by the South Florida National Parks Trust, the Miami-Dade Division of Cultural Affairs, Cultural Affairs Council, Mayor and Board of County Commissioners, the Center for Visual Communication and park visitors.
