Postcards From Monterey County is a weekly, black-and-white photo feature highlighting life throughout the diverse communities of our region.
B. Bennett is flanked by mountains in two dimensions. He is looking at digital paintings by artist David Hockney, created on an iPad during Hockney's visits to Yosemite National Park in 2010 and 2011 and now on exhibit at the Monterey Museum of Art.
“I like his process, because it requires a lot of thought to put it together and it takes some organization,” Bennett says. “This is his later work and it feels a bit stark.”
Bennett is a resident of Hacienda Carmel, a retirement community, and was with a group visiting the museum during a field trip on May 23.
“This isn’t how I see the forest,” Bennett says. “I’m a hunter and I see the forest as a bunch of trees in the way of my shot.”
