About the photography in this issue:
The photography of Henry Domke, MD, reveals the beauty of nature that’s close to home but rarely seen. While the subjects themselves are not exotic, his fresh approach to nature photography helps others discover the spectacular colors, textures, patterns, and form of native plants and animals. Dr. Domke’s early training in natural history and interest in art led him to take time out from his work as a family practice physician to pursue advanced art training in the mid 1990s. Photography allows him to combine the critical eye of a physician with that of a creative, innovative, passionate artist, and his technical abilities help him create a unique vision of the natural world.
