Beth Maynor Finch is an accomplished conservation photographer who has spent much of her life chronicling the natural beauty and remnant wild places of the South. The photographs are mostly from unprotected places – each with its own story of biological compromise and imminent threat. But these places also embrace a Southern tradition – of being saved and preserved, of restoration and resurrection. In July 2017, she and Bill Finch were married, combining their passions for conservation.
In 2012, Beth earned her real estate license and is currently working with her son Spence Maynor at Cyprus Partners where they are selling some very unique tracts of land to good stewards.
After many years of canoeing and photographing the rivers of Alabama, Beth produced the book Headwaters: A Journey on Alabama Rivers, co-authored with John Hall and published by the University of Alabama Press in 2009. It was produced to support the efforts of the many river groups in Alabama.
Longleaf: Far as the Eye Can See is her newest book, written by Bill Finch and Rhett Johnson with help from John Hall. It was produced to support the efforts of the Longleaf Alliance, and was published through the University of North Carolina Press in 2012.
Beth’s fine art photographs are part of many private and corporate art collections across the country. Today, Beth’s photographs give us a moving vision of the natural world and speak quietly yet deeply of our need to preserve the South’s unique environmental heritage.
