Art at Triphammer
Photographer, Jim Burlitch has revived a longstanding interest in photography that goes back to high school and college days in Wheeling, WV, his home town. After a career in teaching and doing research in chemistry at Cornell University, Jim retired and now devotes much of his time sharing his love of Nature with others through his photography. Having been raised on a small farm and spending much time outdoors, Jim has an appreciation and respect for natural beauty that gives him an 'eye' for composition and patience to wait for good conditions. Some of his works have been described as paintings (see for example Falls in Autumn and Teton Country). His work has been recently recognized by awards such as fourth place in the '04 State of the Art Gallery Annual Photography Show Lonely Route, first place photography in the '06 Cortland Arts Festival for Twisted Light, and 2nd place in photography in WSKG's '09 art contest & auction, Beyond Boundries, for Light in Winter.
