The Harbor History Museum’s current exhibit, , showcases large-format photographs of renowned photographer Jini Dellaccio. Many of Dellaccio’s photographs depict her subjects in nature, or feature nature itself as the sole subject. Tasman Sea, Australia, 1958 is a powerful shot of an enormous wave in the middle of a sea, while Ilon Brown, Gig Harbor, 1966 depicts a woman amongst vivid green leaves in the woods.
“Maria is an incredible photographer and we are incredibly excited she will be sharing her knowledge with us. This will be a unique experience for our guests, as they get to step into Jini Dellaccio’s shoes for a day and live the world of photography, taking the exhibit to another level,” said Sue Loiland, Executive Director.
Barnowl has degrees in Psychology and Zoology, with a focus on animal behavior. Her abiding love of animals and the environment has led her to work as a wildlife rescue-and-rehabilitator, veterinary assistant, geologic surveyor, wetland steward, and photographer. Barnowl strives to share her passion for our beautiful planet through her photographs.
