“The colorful landscapes of Utah and its many magical elements take form through Christopherson’s love of photography,” park officials said in a news release. “Explore the many different landscapes of Utah, from golden aspen covered mountains, to glowing red rock canyons and beautiful winding rivers.”
As a photographer, Christopherson has had many opportunities to capture events through a lens that “cannot be described in words,” according to the news release. Her passion started in a photography class in high school, when other students were captivated by Christopherson’s ability to capture her love of wildlife and the outdoors on film. Christopherson continued her studies of photography at Utah State University. Though she later changed her course of study to a Bachelor of Science degree in recreation resource management, Christopherson says she never lost sight of her love of photography.
Christopherson worked as a seasonal park ranger at Dead Horse Point State Park in 2012, and recognized that she was truly experiencing Utah for the first time. She was able to travel to many beautiful destinations to capture intimate moments in nature. The exhibit at the Bighorn Gallery will be a culmination of the many adventures Christopherson has experienced while exploring the diverse landscapes of Utah
Each photograph in the exhibit will be available for purchase, and the gallery will also have matted prints and note cards featuring Christopherson’s work.
