3/05 - John Moran's Journal of Light: A Photographer's Search for the Soul of Florida: John Moran travels the sunshine state with his cameras seeking his vision of natural Florida as it must have appeared to Ponce De Leon and other early strangers in Paradise. Moran's work celebrates the magic of a unique landscape born of water and blessed with beauty beyond measure. Moran's remarkable Journal of Light speaking programs, based on his book and touring museum exhibit of the same title, highlight a 20-year odyssey to discover the soul of one of the most photographed states in the country, and features his striking photographs of the alligators, beaches, birds, rivers, springs, palms, turtles and flowers that make Florida the amazing place we call home.
