Derrick Burbul’s creative work explores the environment and our relationship to it. He has research interests in photography, foundation design, visual culture, and environmental sustainability. His creative interests have explored a wide range of photographic processes from pinhole photography, to tintypes, digital manipulation with Photoshop, and combining historical and contemporary photographic processes. The results have lead to inclusion in many exhibitions, including: The National: Best Contemporary Photography 2014, at the Fort Wayne Museum of Art; American Landscapes: Scenes from the Americas, at the Maryland Federation of Art; Folktales and Legends: An Exhibition Without Borders at the John Michael Kohler Arts Center in Sheboygen, Wisconsin; and the LaGrange National XXV Biennial, at the Lamar Dodd Art Center in LaGrange, Georgia.
