The works of photographer Darryl Lloyd at Second Story Gallery through April, artist reception Apr. 3

Photographer Darryl Lloyd will be featured at Second Story Gallery in April with his show titled “Guardians of the Columbia: Landscapes of Mt. Adams, Mt. Hood and Mt. St. Helens.” An artists reception will be held in conjunction with Camas’ First Friday, this Friday, Apr. 3 from 5 to 8 p.m.
Lloyd grew up at the base of Mt. Adams, and when he was given a Brownie Holiday camera at the age of 10, he began recording his climbs of Adams, Hood and St. Helens. That in turn led, he says, to “a lifetime of mountain travel, freelance photography and the study of geosciences, which nourished my love of volcanoes.” The show is a retrospective of over 40 years of shooting the three “Guardians” from different angles–many of them vertical as the photographer climbed up for better views.
Second Story Gallery is upstairs at the Camas Public Library, 625 NE Fourth Ave. Lloyd’s show will continue through Saturday, April 25 during the library’s regular hours of 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Wednesday, and 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Thursday through Saturday.
