Photographer Richard Seeley Presents “Wild Families: New Life in the Wild” at Mass Audubon’s Joppa Flats Newburyport, MA –

If baby animals make you smile, you won’t be able to resist the new photography exhibit coming to Mass Audubon’s Joppa Flats. Award winning photographer Richard Seeley of Gloucester will be showing his photographs of wildlife families and wildlife babies at Mass Audubon’s Joppa Flats Education Center from June 5 through July 24.

A portion of all purchases made during the exhibit helps to support Mass Audubon’s Joppa Flats.

Mr. Seeley’s work features images taken in national parks and wildlife areas all around the country, featuring New England, Colorado, and Alaska. The images include families of grizzly bears, foxes, swans, lynx, moose, owls, whooping cranes, and others. His unique focus is to capture wildlife families during intimate interactions.

“First I have to find them, then I need the right weather conditions, then I need the right camera gear in position, then I need to be in the right location relative to the wildlife (not too far and not too close), and finally I need luck and patience to capture that special image of an intimate moment or unique wildlife event,” says the photographer. Many of the images at this show demonstrate how persistence, patience, and luck can pay off. Mr. Seeley’s works are displayed at galleries in Gloucester, Rockport, and Colorado. His works hang in many private collections worldwide. For more information on Richard Seeley, please go to his Web site at
