Murray is a landscape and wildlife photographer who focuses on distinctive animal portraits and atmospheric landscapes.
There will be a First Friday opening reception for Murray at the Juneau Artists Gallery, located at 175 South Franklin Street, on Sept. 5 from 4:30 to 7 pm.
Murray is the son of an Army Warrant Officer and grew up all over the world. He continued his travels by attending a small Liberal Arts college in New York and then law school in California. He practiced law for seven years in Dallas, Boston, and New York City, before moving to Juneau in 2006.

Taken literally, photo-graphy means light-writing. A photo is an attempt to tell a story with light. The story could be so many things: a fishing eagle, a sleepy bear, the break of sunrise through morning mist. And the photographer's art is to capture that story in a paragraph of perfect light, at the critical dramatic moment, in a carefully composed phrase of frame. Southeast Alaska is a treasure-trove of such light-narratives.
