A new series by photographer Norman Locks, “Trails and Paths between Urban and Wilderness Landscapes,” will be displayed today through March 31 at Julie Baker Fine Art Gallery.

Locks, who has taught photography for 30 years at venues such as the Ansel Adams Gallery in Yosemite and Friends of Photography in Carmel, is recognized for his experimentation with Polaroid photographs and digital processes in his landscape photography.

He is chairman of the art department at the University of California at Santa Cruz.

In Locks’ latest series, large photo montages include dense wilderness scenes mounted together with trucks at a road stop, San Francisco streets and motel parking lots. Locks’ images offer a dialogue about man’s relationship with his chosen environments.

Locks’ other works exhibited at the Grass Valley gallery had their origin from a point-and-shoot camera. The familiar subjects such as barbecues and birthday parties were digitally printed onto larger versions on archival paper.

A free reception for the artist will be from 4 to 6 p.m. on Saturday. Viewing hours are from noon to 5 p.m., Wednesdays through Sundays, and by appointment.

Julie Baker Fine Art is at 120 N. Auburn St., Suite A.
