Lexington Park Library Art Gallery

May 16 – July 1, 2017: Jose Saldana

Jose Saldana, who lost his hearing at the age of two, is a globe-trotting, mountain-climbing photographer of Puerto Rican descent who lives in Great Mills. His spectacular photography will be on display at the Lexington Park Library Gallery from May 16-July 1.

Since 2005 Jose has managed to climb more than 40 mountains ranging in heights up to 16,500 feet. He has reached the peaks of many of the tallest mountains in the U.S., Canada, Nepal, Argentina, and Chile.

The serene peaks and their overwhelming silence appealed to the young man. With a camera in his hands, The Gallaudet-educated photographer managed to document the extraordinarily tranquil settings like few have been able to do. His breathtaking collection of photos, particularly those of the Himalayas in Nepal and the people who reside there, are truly remarkable and have earned Jose recognition in professional photography circles.
