There is a mystique to fire that runs deep in our DNA; we are drawn to it, and we fear it because it is a phenomenon that exceeds our control. It is simply bigger than us. We’ve placed ourselves in it’s habitat in the wildland urban interface and so we must become more fire-adapted. Photographs take abstract concepts that come from verbal descriptions and give them a visceral reality. We understand it more when we see it.
WRWC is co-sponsoring two wildland fire photography events on Thursday October 20th.
