Striving for Minimalism 
with Dan Zarlenga

“One thing, an idea without distraction, a solitary shade of color. Celebrating simplicity. The symmetry of solo. An embrace of emptiness. Can putting less in an image make it more?”

Dan (from Missouri dept. of Conservation) likes to explore several forms of photography but has a special leaning towards landscapes and astro-landscapes. Dan’s photography has appeared in The Conservation Department’s Natural Events Calendar, the Missouri Conservationist Magazine, the Missouri Prairie Journal, The Nature Conservancy Magazine, Terrain magazine, and the book Magnificent Missouri. It has been on display at the Jacoby Art Center in Alton, Il., The Dark Room, Powder Valley Nature Center, and Burr Oak Woods Nature Center in Kansas City.
