What is your concept of Paradise? Is it a place, or a state of mind? Artist Marjorie Brown Pierson explores this question in Immersion, a new exhibition of fine art photographs.

Marjorie Brown Pierson is a visual artist, author and lecturer based in Durham, North Carolina. Her fine art photographs explore the complexity of evolving coastal landscapes, bringing new perspective to environmental issues facing the American South and the world at large. Her work is represented in museum, university, corporate and private collections across the country. She has taught at Duke University.

Marjorie creates painterly fine art photographs that bring new perspective to and appreciation for endangered coastal environments. She uses a selective eye and innovative in-camera techniques to create dream-like visions of endangered wetlands and evolving oceans.

Marjorie’s first book, Struck by Nature: Photographs of Bald Head Island, was published in December 2012.
