WUFT-FM anniversary poster features photographic collaboration
GAINESVILLE, Fla. — Public radio station WUFT-FM Floridaâ€™s 89.1 will honor its 32nd anniversary with a limited edition poster featuring an image by photographers John Moran and David Moynahan.
â€śOasis in the Dark/Suwannee Riverâ€ť will be a 24-by-36-inch vertical poster available during the WUFT-FM fall membership campaignÂ Oct. 7-18.
Moran, a University of Florida alumnus, captures images of Floridaâ€™s landscapes and wildlife with an emphasis on the stateâ€™s waters: the rivers, lakes, coasts, swamps and springs, and the creatures that inhabit them. Moran was named Floridaâ€™s official state photographer in 2007, and his work has appeared in National Geographic, Life, Time, Smithsonian and the New York Times Magazine. Following a 23-year career as a photographer, writer and editor forÂ The Gainesville Sun, Moran leftÂ daily journalism in 2003 to concentrate full time on photographing the best of vanishing natural Florida.
Moynahan, a native Floridian,Â is a conservation photographer whose pictures help advocate for preservation of the stateâ€™s wild places. He received awards at the Natureâ€™s Best Photography 2011 Windland Smith Rice Awards and is a staff photographer for Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission’s Office of Recreation Services. His images have appeared on books and guides about Floridaâ€™s public land.
The poster will be available during the campaign along with a set of four notecards featuring Florida springs after dark. The poster and the cards will be available for a $120 contribution to public radio.
Posters that are pledged for can be picked up at a poster-signing reception from 5:30 to 7 p.m.Â Nov. 4Â at the Florida Museum of Natural History. Moran and Moynahan will be availableÂ to sign and add a personal message.Â Sweetwater Picture Framing will feature special framing prices.
