is a large-format landscape colorist working principally
in remote pristine wilderness areas throughout the world.
His early experience as fine art color pioneer Eliot Porterís
field assistant helped to nurture a loving eye devoted to
isolating and capturing the mysteries in nature that he
struggled for decades to unravel as a research scientist
in oceanography and global climate change. Paul Caponigro
has also been a principal influence on his development as
a consistent mentor to Parker since the mid-70s. Over the
past three decades, Parker has produced a body of work in
several formats that has been widely exhibited and published.
