“Photography, as a powerful medium of expression and communications, offers an infinite variety of perception, interpretation and execution.” – Ansel Adams
Photography expresses the unspoken, yet emotive. Because it’s open to perception and interpretation, there is no one “right” way to capture moments important to you.
After moving to New York City, I started searching for opportunities to actively infuse photography into my life. I found the “NYC Digital Photography Workshops Meetup Group,” a well-known digital photo workshop group, which sets out on photo walks relatively frequently throughout the city.
On April 25, the group hosted a reception for the “Springing Through the Lens” exhibit, and I’m happy to say I contributed 10 photos. This is my first exhibit and certainly not the last. The show consists of digital reproductions of our photos across 14 screens. 25 of us display a mix of personal photography ranging from travel to NYC scenes to portraits to abstracts. All of the work is up for sale.
FOR ANYONE INTERESTED IN VIEWING THE EXHIBIT:
Photos are on display until May 1 in NYC at the SoHo Gallery for Digital Art.
BEHIND THE GALLERY
These photos convey a part of my transition story from Boston to NYC. I took “springing” in a literal sense – into movement and a type of re-energizing from one city to another. Boston will always have a special place in my heart as it is the city where I’ve spent six great years of my adult life. My time in NYC is still relatively new. I’m continuously exploring ways to make the most of it in this inspiring, lively city.
I would love to hear from others about their life experiences with photography – what it means to you, the power of photography, travel photography, or simple capturing significant events and people in your life.
