Through Beginner’s Eyes, an exhibit exploring contemplative photography, opens Friday, January 12th with a reception from 5 to 7 p.m. The reception is free and open to the public.
Contemplative photography is a method of seeing and photographing the world in ways that reveal a richness and beauty that is often hidden from view. Instead of emphasizing subject matter or the technical aspects of photography, contemplative camera-work accentuates images based upon fresh perception. At turns abstract and abstruse or descriptive and precise, these images endeavor to describe the world in subtle and unexpected ways. Photographers featured in the exhibition range in style, intention, and time period, but all of their works share an evocation of the poetic.
Photographers for the exhibit include Blaine Ellis, Chester Ng, William Giles, Brad Cole, Jeff Nixon, Viktor Klinger, Richard Murai, and Roger Vail, among others. The exhibit can be seen Wednesday through Friday from 11 to 4 p.m. or by appointment through February 17th, 2018.
