Nature is always in her lens, even when the method of capturing an image changes. Janine endlessly seeks nature, no matter the season, searching for her ideal moments to capture. This body of work began in the snowy winter of 2015 with a digital camera converted to capture ‘infrared’, light that is above the spectrum visible to the human eye. In these photographs, the familiar colors of nature are transposed, creating an uncanny landscape that is both picturesque and surreal.
Robert Salthouse – Shadows
Although hard shadows in a photograph can often be a distraction, the photographs in this exhibit by local photographer, Robert Salthouse, turn them into primary graphic elements. Obvious shadows help emphasize the truism that what we are seeing is not the real thing (Ceci n’est pas une pipe), but a selected, edited, two-dimensional representation of it. Hopefully, they also encourage the viewer to focus more on design and color, rather than on photographs as representations of things.
