About the Artist

Charlotte Gibb is an award-winning and renowned nature and landscape photographer based in Northern California.  She is known for her mastery of "Intimate Landscapes" — small scenes derived from a large landscape. 

The youngest of nine, she spent her early life playing and exploring the rural Northern California mountain area of her childhood home. Her father, an avid mountain climber and nature lover, made sure his kids shared his passion for the outdoors. After his death in a climbing accident, her mother continued to encourage an attachment to nature, ensuring that family vacations were spent outdoors camping, hiking, and exploring.

Charlotte earned her Bachelor of Arts degree from the Academy of Art University in San Francisco. She cut her teeth in the advertising business as an art director in the 1990s, then operated her own graphic design firm in the San Francisco Bay Area for decades. Throughout her long career as an artist, her photography was constantly infused in her design work. Her darkroom has since been replaced with digital darkroom tools, and her style has evolved from a somewhat journalistic approach, to one that pays tribute to the natural world.

Charlotte writes and publishes on the subject of photography and creativity, has been a keynote speaker and educator for several national photography events, served as a judge for international and local photography competitions, and exhibits her work throughout California.

She can usually be found tromping with her camera bag in the wilderness areas around the Sierra Nevada range and Yosemite National Park in her home state. 

Story Behind the Image

This abstract photograph captures the ethereal beauty of a Dogwood tree in full spring bloom, set against the natural backdrop of Yosemite’s wilderness. This piece is a composite of over 20 frames made around the tree at different angles, then superimposed, lending it an impressionistic aura that transcends the boundaries of traditional photography. The Dogwood, central to the composition, is a flurry of white blossoms that appear to be floating, giving the scene a dream-like quality. Around it, the forest is suggested through layers of verdant hues, a tapestry of greens that hint at the dense foliage and towering trees characteristic of Yosemite. The ground, a subtle mix of earthen tones, anchors the scene, providing a gentle contrast to the vibrant flora. The photograph is a fusion of color and light, a visual poem that eloquently speaks to the quiet splendor of spring in one of nature’s most revered sanctuaries.
