The exhibit continues to receive very favorable reviews from all who have seen it. The wide range of photographic styles and subject matter keeps the viewer on their toes as the move through the exhibit. There are more than 100 images dispersed across 18 black felt panels. Each panel has a master print and surrounding images that support a theme suggested by an “inspirational” quote plate at the bottom of the panel. The photographs were created with a wide variety of image creation devices. The visual strength of the photographs is so strong, that it is difficult, albeit unnecessary, to attempt to discern between high-end cameras and cell phone images. It really doesn’t make any difference once you let down your “What-kind-of-camera-did-you-use” mindless inquiries. The truth lies in the face value of the images and the mindful moment in which they were captured. Each of the photographers featured in the exhibit rose to the occasion and stretched to reach the next rung on their own creative ladders.
Looking forward to the Friday night opening of my student’s first contemplative photography exhibit. There will be more than 100 images that reflect their approach to “mindful” photography. Opening night is this Friday January 17 from 7-9 PM at the Tri-Community Photography Center in Covina. All are welcome to join us. As the instructor and curator of the exhibit, I am grateful for the opportunities we have shared. It’s been an enlightening experience.
I’ll be offering a new course at Tri-Community School of Photography, this Summer. The course title is “Composition—Seeing the Unseen.” The class meets on Wednesday afternoons from 1-4, starting June 19th. This course is designed for all photo skill levels. The course will attempt to guide you to “see” in new and non-traditional ways. Any and all imaging tools are allowed. While it’s a new digital/visual world, nothing can surpass the perception of an insightful moment that speaks for itself.
