"...a unique vision of beauty, poetry and power possible in great landscape photography."
-Mary Ellen Mark
"...both image and meaning coincide in the imagery of David Zimmerman. In his sensuous sharp focus, we become more aware of where we are as humans in the drifting sands of time."
"When the grand prize-winning Landscapes appeared on the big screen we knew that these were special images - the result
of rigorous work and heartfelt intentions. The purity, the almost spiritual quality and sense of scale impressed us all greatly.
David Zimmerman's work combines composition, purity of vision and consummate skill. With his control of that symbiosis, he
addresses the important subject of our environment in trouble. To find this work was a great joy to us all."
