Jan. 29, 2014. A new photography exhibit opened to the public in Linville last week, featuring photographer Todd Bush. A High Country local, Bush runs a commercial photography studio with his wife in Banner Elk, and has had his work published everywhere from book covers to magazines.
Bush’s photography showcases beautiful elements of the High Country and the natural world that he hopes people will go out and experience for themselves, as well as portraying what he described simply as, “people in the High Country doing their thing.”
“I’d like to inspire an appreciation for how many beautiful things are in our area, and inspire people to go out and enjoy it and take some photos themselves,” Bush said of his hopes for the gallery.
Cannon contacted Bush to feature his work in the Dickson Gallery, which this year showcases a different artist to the public every 2 months. Bush has filled it with photos of scenic wildlife and other beautiful photos of nature.
“When we were installing the work there were some patients who came through. I tried to pick soothing photos for the gallery and I hope it can be warming and soothing to those who come through the doors who may be going through what is otherwise a scary time,” Bush said.
The exhibit, located in the Dickson Gallery of Cannon Hospital, 434 Hospital Drive in Linville, will be on display until March 1.
