Genesis, A Photographic Essay

"In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth . . ."

The book of Genesis provides the basis for a beautiful story of when the earth was new. The Genesis Photographic Essay presented here is based on the King James version of the Bible, Genesis 1:1-2:3. This essay has been an ongoing project of Ted's since 1968. At that time Ted presented an essay consisting of 7 photographs as a high school project in a contemporary arts class. Sadly, that essay has long ago vanished. Photographs in this book are the result of years of photography, taken between 1972 and 2018.

Photographs in this essay are the property of Ted and Dora McGee and cannot be reproduced without written permission.

All aquatic life, birds, and animals were photographed in their natural environment. No baiting or enticements were used.
