Still-Life Photography
Allen Schill
“The objects are found or collected and often altered by me, and tend to show the marks of time, as do the trays and so forth which are worn rough. I select and combine them in a way that I hope brings out the visual resonance they produce together.”
Envisioning Habitat
Cheryl Medow
“I desire to share the beauty I see with the hope that once the magnificence of this planet and its amazing creatures is seen, the desire to preserve and protect it will find expression in the viewer.”
Identity and Perception
Sherry Karver
“Pushing traditional boundaries of photography, oil painting and narrative text, I combine them to create a unique hybrid that confronts today’s individual and societal issues.”
Beyond the Mundane
Linda Barsotti
“Objects in the house that are mundane and utilitarian: cleaning supplies, electronic parts and construction materials — objects that might be associated with femaleness or maleness.”
Center of Quiet
J. Felice Boucher
“My fine art photography is still and direct, and closely parallels my meditation practices.”
IMAGINARIUM (OR “ONCE UPON A TIME”)
Sylvia Paret
“These photos depict a visual equivalent to what I imagine experiencing these playgrounds as a child might have felt like, or, at least, what the recollection of that experience might look like today.”
Abstract Architectural
Richard Greene
“The mathematical relationships among the buildings, the collisions of lines, the confusions of space and depth, the visual interactions of several structures at once, all are spellbinding.”
Stories from the Kitchen Table
Astrid Reischwitz
“When I visit my childhood home, I absorb the ingredients: the flavors of dishes, and the same furnishings, photographs, knick–knacks, and worn kitchen tools that have been there since well before I was born.”
URBAN SPRAWL - EMPTINESS
Emmanuel Monzon
“What inspires me is the emptiness in the urban landscape and in the great American spaces. I like repetitions, I like series, and I like driving around.”
Balancing Cultures
Jerry Takigawa
“My family experienced the economic loss of property, the shame and indignation of incarceration, and the task of re-integration into American society after release from the WWII concentration camps.”
Energy - Ivanpah Thermal Solar Plant
David Gardner
“The Ivanpah Thermal Solar Power Plant came into view. Like a vision from Tolkien’s Mordor, three towers, glowing ominously, rise above the surrounding desert.”
Muses of stone: women lost to time’s embrace
Carson Barnes
“My calling is to remember and celebrate these women of the past. My models are their portraits in marble from their time.”
Scenes: San Francisco
Peter Michael Miller
“I choose a scene and then capture frames of strangers unpredictability entering and exiting.”
