This Beautiful City: Realized

November 29, 2016  •  Leave a Comment

I choose to have a positive outlook on life; to strive towards making a positive impact in the lives of others. Photography is a way to express my thoughts and feelings; often by capturing the details light reveals as it plays across natural and man-made landscapes.

 

In December, 2015 I set out to photograph San Bernardino, California from this perspective.  Along the way I learned there is much more than the common stereotypes about this area.  Traveling in, around and through the city over the past twelve months, I purposely slowed my process and focused on seeing more that what meets the eye.

 

  • Trees, an enduring sign of life with intricate twists and turns, reaching for the sky
  • A white church, seemingly abandoned except for the light at the door
  • Shadows playing against a wall, mimicking every move of the palms, until the sun rises beyond
  • The elegance of a neighborhood street lamp that has the power to illuminate the dark

 

My hope was to share my perspective with an exhibit entitled “This Beautiful City” at the end of 2016.  As the image installation was completed on November 17th, this dream has quickly become a reality.

 

Please join me at the opening reception of “This Beautiful City”  Wednesday, November 30th,  5–8 p.m.  I look forward to sharing my work and hearing your thoughts.
