This week, Thibault Gallery's Artist Spotlight shines on photographer George Cathcart. George is an award-winning nature photographer who travels the world photographing its natural wonders both on land and under the sea. His passion for the environment and the Earth's wild creatures can be seen in his work and felt in his words. He had this to say about his photograph "Turtle Tracks",
"I captured this image of a newly hatched loggerhead turtle in August 2016 while I was fortunate enough to be volunteering for the Caretta Project, monitoring turtle nests on Wassaw Island, Georgia. The image represents to me the powerful forces driving this tiny creature across a hundred yards of sand to reach the ocean after climbing out of its sandy nest with a hundred of its brothers and sisters. Now it is alone, flapping furiously to get to the ocean before it can be captured by scavenging gulls or ghost crabs. And once it reaches the ocean, it faces a host of predators across 60 miles to reach the Gulf Stream where it will spend most of its life. Only one in a thousand will reach maturity. Most will disappear like the tracks in the wet sand. And yet the turtles survive. That is the power of life."
