Digital imaging is now the entry point for many newcomers to photography and for others it presents a host of creative possibilities and a credible alternative for recording and exhibiting.
Born, raised and educated in the San Francisco Bay Area, Rick Murai transitioned out of academia after teaching creative photography for over three decades. An avowed culture junkie, his fascination with documenting world sacred sites has generated travel to over thirty-five countries. His work reflects an unfolding voyage of discovery that explores evidence of spiritual devotion within unique and distinctive cultures and has been featured in respected publications including Camera Arts, SilverShotz International (Australia), multiple issues of LensWork and the current April, 2017, issue of B&W. Rick's work has garnered numerous awards from the Travel Photographer of the Year (UK), Black and White Spyder, All About Photo and the Best of Show, Center for Photographic Art’s (Carmel) 2014 International Juried Portfolio Competition.
Rick is the Assistant Director, Center for Photographic Art and is represented by the Weston Gallery, Carmel.
