The Art of Meditation, Islip Art Museum

Freedom 8933, archival pigment photograph by Miranda Gatewood,  has been chosen for The Art of Meditation, Islip Art Museum, Islip, NY, curated by Seung Lee.   The exhibit runs from August 15 through October 7, 2018. IMG_8933-EditFreedom 8933 is part of a series of images that explore motion. Using the camera to freeze a definitive moment, transient and somewhat random views are made solid. Light, itself, and the temporal properties of the day are made into objects to behold. The series comments on the way things are seen and absorbed in a hypervisual culture, with its deficit of depth, lack of deep examination, and the brevity of the experience. I use photography to make an object of time, to make an object of light, or both.


50 Irish Lane, East Islip, NY 11730. Phone: 631-224-5402. Open Tuesday-Friday 10 am-4 pm; Saturdays 12-4 pm. Closed Sunday & Monday. The Islip Art Museum is the leading exhibition space for contemporary art on Long Island. The New York Times has called the Museum the “best facility of its kind outside Manhattan.”

It Began with Alewife

The New Face of Conservation is Young, Active and Outspoken.

       I’m thrilled to be a documentary photographer for Charles Bevington’s Alewife Migration “webisode” on Coastal Resiliency for The Sierra Club.  The alewife is a little fish with a big role in the ecosystem. Meet them in downtown Riverhead, NY at Grangebel Park Fish Passage and Woodhull Dam across from the County Center. They leave salt water to spawn in our rivers even in populated areas. –Miranda Gatewood

The Season of Compassion

Making a wreath from greens in my yard as a Thanksgiving gift has become a new tradition. I’ve planted these glorious evergreens. The blue spruce and sugar pines were from New Hampshire. Ten years ago they were small enough to fit in the backpack I had to carry them back to our cabin–riding on the back of a motorcycle! No store-bought pie can tell such a story.
