About Bo Mackison

I'm a photographer, book-artist, traveler, naturalist, and creator of the Contemplative Creatives Journey, An Online Workshop and Community and Desert Wisdom Cards and Workshops. Though often not well known, I find the desert a welcoming place - a healing space. Its mysteries and gifts transformed me several years ago. Since that first encounter, I return again and again to fill my well in what most people think of as a desolate region. I'd love to share my desert discoveries and wisdom with you. Please subscribe to receive my five part mini email course The Gifts of the Desert. It's my gift to you.

  1. Sweet I’ll check it out… it’s just a short walk from my home.

      How wonderful! It’s a fair drive for me, so I haven’t seen the exhibit yet. I’m interested to find out how everything looks, how things are going…

  2. This abstract is just breath-taking. The fact that it’s a flower makes it even more wonderful. The composition, the lighting, the concept are all so graceful. Congratulations on this artistic honor!

    • Bo Mackison says:

      This was one of my break-through photographs, Quinn. The one that pushed me to be more experimental, more abstract. And so I’m especially proud that it’s in this exhibit. Thanks.

  3. Beautiful, dreamy image.

  4. Dreamy image!! And – am I to guess that your ‘work’ is a part of the exhibit??? Congratulations!!!

    • Bo Mackison says:

      No guessing required, Marcie. Peony Petals is indeed in the exhibit. I haven’t seen it yet, but it will be there ’til October 8. Plenty of time.

  5. This is such a beautiful image, Bo.

    How exciting for you that it is in the exhibit! Congratulations! 😀
