Photography Of Kari Greer

Our favorite wildfire photographer is being honored with her own exhibit in Moscow, Idaho from February 16 through April 14. Kari Greer’s work will be displayed in the Prichard Art Gallery of the Bruce M. Pitman Center on the campus of the University of Idaho (map). A former firefighter, she maintains a Red Card while working on the fireline as a photographer under contract with NIFC.

We have featured her photos many times, which earned her her own “tag” on Wildfire Today.

Here is the announcement about the exhibit from the university:

“Facing the Inferno, the Wildfire Photography of Kari Greer,” will go in display Friday, Feb. 16, at the Prichard Art Gallery. An opening reception is 5-7 p.m. Friday. Greer, who works as a photographer for the National Interagency Fire Center in Boise, will speak about her work during a lecture at 5:30 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 15, in the Borah Theater of the Bruce M. Pitman Center on campus.

Greer, a former firefighter, specializes in wildland fire photography and editorial photojournalism. She has unprecedented access to aerial operations and accompanies fire crews working side-by-side on attack lines throughout the Western fire season. Her work examines the heighted fire activity seen across Idaho, Montana and Wyoming at a time when people are traveling further into the woods and the land surrounding wildfires is increasingly contested.

Congratulations Kari!
