Todd Mann, Centerport NY Member Since September 2008 Artist Statement EXPLORING is what we do to add joy and knowledge to our lives. Our world holds so much beauty and exciting vistas to take in. My love for travel developed along with a passion for outdoor recreation including biking in the Hawian Islands when I was 15, skiing the Alps at 17. I have visited family living in Tanzania and camped along side the National Geographic photography teams on Christmas Eve, for my sons 4th birthday. More recently, I have moved on, after many years of directing a large tennis/fitness club. Traveling through South and Cenrtal America including the Galapagos has reopened my eyes to our planets secrets. I love to take pictures of the never ending surprises, which surely are around every corner of this journey we all take called. ...LIFE. I hope you will join me, as we explore together !
