ALEXANDRIA, VA, October 23, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- A "must visit" for nature lovers in the metropolitan Washington, D.C. area, Green Spring Garden is the perfect destination for inspiration. Adding to the beautiful scenery, internationally renowned photographer Paul Taņedo's new exhibit will be featured at the Horticultural Center.
Better known for his powerful and painful portraits dictating life and poverty in the Philippines, Taņedo's series of mysteriously illuminated plant prints brings him and viewers to a happier place. Oversized images of vibrant flowers, blades of grass, and fallen leaves as seen through the eye of the photographer will fill two galleries this fall.
Taņedo states "Having been a photographer documenting people since the early 70's, it is challenging, intriguing, and very fascinating to find fresh perspective on the other side of the fence."
Paul Tanedo Photographs will be on display from October 29 - December 29, 2013
Opening Reception/Meet The Artist: Sunday, November 3, 1-3pm
This is the second time Paul Taņedo will be featured at the Horticultural Center.
