Sedona AZ (June 3, 2016) – “Perspectives: Sedona and Northern Arizona through the Eye and Lens of Ted Grussing” will be featured at KSB’s Wednesday, June 8th Preserving the Wonder™ Speaker Series.
“My work is focused on the transient beauty that surrounds each of us every day,” Grussing said. “The beauty is there for all to see if you but take the time to look, and this is the vision I share with others.”
Members, residents and visitors are all welcome to join Keep Sedona Beautiful (“KSB”) at 5:30 p.m. at its historic Pushmataha Center on 360 Brewer Road. The evening will include complimentary appetizers donated by El Rincon Restaurante Mexicano and refreshments provided by KSB.
Naturalist, attorney, author, pilot, businessman, gem cutter, father and caregiver, few people have taken as many disparate paths in life as the multi-talented Ted Grussing. And for Grussing, doing so was more than just natural – it was destiny. A more conventionally focused journey would simply not have sufficed, not for a spirit so keen on adventure and a mind so ravenous for knowledge.
Possessing a life-long passion for the art of photography since the tender age of eight, Grussing had his own darkroom and was undertaking professional photography assignments by the age of fourteen.
Grussing’s subjects include majestic aerial landscapes, wildlife and flowers, plus imaginative, dreamlike composite images. His prints are crafted with a virtuosity springing from many decades of study and practice, and the excellence of his work has been acknowledged by the editors of Arizona Highways Magazine and dozens of other publications and Internet galleries that have featured his images.
As a photographer, Grussing puts his love of flying and his skill as a pilot to good use. “My motor glider becomes an aerial tripod and shooting platform to capture beauty such as few others – even those who are pilots – get to see,” he notes. “It is my joy to share these sights with others through my photography.”
Keep Sedona Beautiful’s monthly Preserving the Wonder™ Speaker Series is held the second Wednesday of each month from September to June. It focuses on presenting a diversity of programs relevant to the unique environment of our region.
