Bruce W. Maki is a landscape/fine art photographer and naturalist. His interest in landscape photography was sparked as a young geologist observing and studying natural features of the environment. Much of Bruce’s work is within the Great Lakes area. His studio Juniper Hill Garret, where photograph post-production, printing, and framing takes place is located in a converted chicken coop on a Victorian era farm in Emerson Township, Michigan. Bruce's photography attempts to capture not just the beauty of the natural environment, but to create images that reflect the human experience. Loneliness and isolation are common themes as well as strength, hope, and joy- often within the same photograph. Perhaps the best way of thinking when viewing Bruce's photographs is with consideration of the Haitian proverb "deye mon, gen mon" – “behind mountains, more mountains”.
