Connecticut photographer, world traveler, artist and designer, Dave Pressler, shares a dynamic presentation, "CHILLING OUT IN CHILE: Sharing a Cool Experience," documented during his recent adventures in the high deserts, fjords and mountainous areas of Chile, South America. On his trip Dave visited Patagonia with its dramatic landscapes, glaciers, waterfalls and rainbows, including Torres del Paine National Park; The Atacama Desert and salt flats; Chile's historic capital of Santiago; and the famous port city of Valparaiso.
Recorded through his visual awareness are: dramatic land and water forms, unique wildlife, botanicals, ancient indigenous rock art, architecture, and some humorous things from contemporary culture. His core message is: "learning to look in order to see," encouraging people of all ages and backgrounds, to become visually conscious of the world around them. So, bring an open mind and don't forget to come with YOUR Eyes Wide Open!
