Burgess photography to help define W.Va.

Photographer Rick Burgess has agreed to provide West Virginia Explorer with imagery needed to help define West Virginia. His landscapes will be featured as editorial content when the remastered version of the guide is unveiled in late October, according to David Sibray, editor and publisher of the online guide to West Virginia.

"Rick has been able to help illustrate a version of West Virginia of which I think many West Virginians were unaware, to say nothing of tourists," Sibray said. "When his work began to appear on Facebook, I though to myself, 'Here's a guy who's seeing the state as no one else is seeing it.'"

Sibray said West Virginia Explorer, which was first launched in 1999, will be opening its pages to photographers who wish to share their vision of the Mountain State. Potential contributors are welcome to call Sibray at (304) 575-7390 or contact him at dsibray@gmail.com.
