January 26 – February 20, 2011
The show, unlike any other I’ve seen so far at the Image City, represents an extraordinary variety of motifs. You’ll find documentary, cityscapes, landscapes, abstracts, and portraits. Many are beautifully framed and some are unconventionally mounted. A lively assortment of the images will keep you busy and interested.
It was such a soulful experience to see many traditional photographic prints, a majority of which were created by Peter Marr, who goes an extra mile (literally and figuratively) to find the objects of his affection. Marr captures nature’s heartbeats magnificently, as well as he masterfully develops his prints. Must see!
For those of you who enjoy aviation, Donald Race’s photograph – F15E – will pull you in at its first sight. A deceptive stillness of the aircraft against brilliant blue sky is breathtaking. Race’s image induces such a romantic and inspiring notion that you may wish to look at it once more before you leave the gallery.
Jesse Thayer’s – a guest photographer – presentation in the East wing of the gallery is a collection of chromogenic and black and white images that are sincere and moving. Among many great shots, my favorite were a heartbreaking Wild Dogs and seductive and sensuous Milan’s Beauty.
Jeno Horvath’s Selfportrait, being comprised of numerous images of himself, each taken in a different setting but presented within the same space, is mind-twisting. I promise that it will make you smile. Let me know if it doesn’t – I would want to know why.
