"A daisy is a simple flower until you begin to really look at it. A good photograph of a daisy will impel you to start looking at a real daisy more pointedly, and from that looking at all things more pointedly."
From the glaciers of Alaska to the coral reefs of St. Thomas, Anthony F. Chiffolo has been photographing nature in its myriad forms for more than twenty years. His photos of flowers, wildlife, and landscapes have appeared on the covers and in the pages of books such as "Encyclopedia of Animal Behavior," "Shrines of the Holy Land," "Marian Shrines of the United States," "Sadhana," and "Affirmations from the Heart of God." His photography has also been published in pamphlets, brochures, catalogs, and magazines such as "Bugle," "Turkey Call," and "Liguorian." He has exhibited and sold his photos at the prestigious Waterfowl Festival in Easton Maryland; the Fire Island Pines Art Project Biennial Art Show in the Pines, Fire Island; the Hudson River Wildlife Festival in Kingston, New York; and the Chesapeake Bay Foundation’s “In Celebration of the Bay" in Annapolis, Maryland.
Anthony is also a published author. His books include "Cooking with the Bible: Biblical Foods, Feasts, and Lore" and, forthcoming, "Cooking with the Movies." Please visit his websites and blogs www.anthonychiffolo.com, www.cookingwiththebible.com, and www.cookingwiththemovies.blogspot.com .
