MUSEUM OF MOAB WELCOMES THE PHOTOGRAPHY OF GERI LEE DRAKE.
A LENS ON LIFE IN MOAB
In 1991, from the entertainment biz of Los Angeles, I was picked up at the Thompson Springs Amtrak Station by my sister Darleen (she worked for Ron Nagel at the Ford Dealership). In total darkness, as we drove toward Moab, Darleen said to me, "if you could only see this landscape right now...." When I awoke the next morning, I knew that I was never going back to Los Angeles. Instead, I opened "Breakfast at Tiffany's" restaurant.
As a teenager, I always hiked or rode my Schwinn bike through the woods picnicking on Indiana Beefsteak tomatoes and drawing pictures to infuse with my poetry. I succumbed to the fact that I could not draw and later took to the camera.
I still have the first photos I took when I was in my twenties. What fun!
The camera, the eye and the heart, it's all connected.
