“The mere experience of photographing wildlife transports me to another world…it is an added bonus when I capture the essence and magnificence of another being I get to share the planet with…” states Eric Sambol.

Sambol uses the medium of photography to reawaken his childhood passion for nature. The exhibition showcases the remarkable wildlife he has had the pleasure to interact with and creatures both large and small are captured on film to show their beauty and character.  The animals become works of art in the close-up portraits and candid shots.

All proceeds from the sales of the exhibition will be donated to the scholarship fund of Monmouth University and Conserve Wildlife Foundation of New Jersey.  Sambol resides in Brick, NJ and is a trustee of Conserve Wildlife Foundation.

For additional information, please contact Eileeen Chapman at 732-571-3512.
