Meet the Artist

On Saturday, December 1st, from 11 am to 12 pm, the Queen Anne’s County Arts Council invites the public to meet photographer James L. Amos and learn the stories behind the images. The exhibit, “Images, Imagination” highlights the work of this former “National Geographic” magazine photographer and that of jewelry designer Wendy Gordon.

Amos will answer questions and share the behind the scenes accounts of some of his most compelling works. Find out the stories behind these intriguing photographs with a first-hand account of these memorable moments, explaining some of the methods he used to create his provocative images. The event is free of charge, but RSVPs must be received before Nov. 27th. For more information, email or call 410-758-2520. The Centre is located at 206 S. Commerce Street in Centreville, Maryland.

Amos is an award winning artist whose images can capture the imagination or provide rare insights into human interactions and those of the natural world. Born in Kalamazoo, Michigan, he began working as a professional photographer in the 1960s, leaving a position at Eastman Kodak for the full-time pursuit of making pictures. As a regular contributor to the National Geographic Society, he was twice named Magazine Photographer of the Year by the National Press Photographers Association. His work has also gained him awards from the White House News Photographers Association. One of Amos’ images was recently selected for an international stamp to be released by the United States Postal Service this year.
