Augustin attended Brooks Institute of Photography and has exhibited extensively throughout the west. He is the recipient of many awards and has had work in a variety of publications, including Black and White Magazine. Much of his work deals with landscape, nature, and fragments of architecture. Augustin uses a large format camera and makes his silver gelatin prints in the traditional method, which results in richly toned, tactile photographs.

He says of his work, “For me, the image needs to go beyond the physical presence of a subject and explore its essential nature.” This event is free to the public and is sponsored by the SCCC Visual Arts program.
