“A Passport and a Past Life” includes images that connect Tom Oliver’s history as a wildlife biologist and growing up in the UP to what he has experienced in his travels abroad, especially as it relates to conservation. He says in his statement, “Since I was a child, nature, wildlife and the outdoors have always been my deepest passion - the intrinsic force which drives me. That force led me to study wildlife ecology and then into a career as a wildlife biologist. I just happened to be a wildlife biologist who decided to pick up a camera to help me learn more about the plants and animals in which I was so interested. So, it was not photography that lured me outdoors; rather, it was the outdoors which guided me to photography. As my career shifted to education and the opportunity to travel presented itself to me, I quickly realized that much of what had always intrigued me about wildlife could also be seen in the unique human habitats I was encountering. This background formed my approach to photography and embodies what I try to show in my pictures.”
