Galerie BMG is pleased to present Oasis, a series of beautifully composed and emotionally compelling color images by Seattle based photographer, Douglas Ethridge. The photographs capture details of public and private spaces found in urban settings….places where moving water creates an oasis of tranquility amidst the concrete and asphalt of the city.

Just as people are drawn to these urban water features, seeking an audible and sensory respite from the chaos that often is so much a part of our modern day existence, so is the viewer drawn to the photographs which have a compelling, yet calming and meditative effect.

The work represents the perfection of design and composition, juxtaposing a defined architectural form with the unpredictability of the water. Translucent, reflective and constantly in motion, the water component is unique to every frame, while the architectural element remains solidly rooted to the intent of its creator.

Douglas Ethridge is a fine art photographer, writer and video producer based in Washington State. His photography has been published by Camera Arts, Hasselblad and B&W Magazine and shown in solo and group exhibitions throughout the U.S. and in Europe.

Images are available in 18 x 24, 27 x 36 and 29 x 40 matted size formats in editions of 20.
