Burkett is that rare bird still working in large-format film photography, and he also develops and prints all his own work. He will dodge and burn for up to eight hours to get the perfect image in his sublime nature photography. The result is a glossy, transparent world where every leaf vein and every underwater weed seem to be in focus. He believes the glory of God shines through nature, and looking at his luminous imagery, you can believe it too. Burkett shows regularly at Northwest by Northwest Gallery and will be there November 2, for the Stormy Weather Arts Festival.
