About the Photographer

A respected local artist, Jindrich (Henry) Degen has taken photos in natural settings from the perspective of the artist as a photographer. Indeed, quite a few of Jindrich’s artistic photos have also become the subject of his paintings.

In Nature’s Beauty, Jindrich continues his exploration of artistic photography featured in his first photography book, Floral and Nature Art. This publication again shows Jindrich’s keen imagination with which he perceives meaning in ordinary objects of nature, thereby giving many of his photos an artistic flair.

While Jindrich only purchased a digital camera a few years ago, he is no newcomer to photography. Since his youth, long before automatic camera setting and in-home photo printers, he has taken black and white photos as well as developing, printing and enlarging them.
