DARK ROOM TO DIGITAL with Alan Vincent (2015 Regional Winner) May 22 to June 25

OPENING RECEPTION Sunday, May 22 2:00 - 4:00 PM.

“I’ve had a camera in my hands since my first Brownie, then SLR and digital. I am attracted to a person, place or thing that needs to be visually recorded. A good picture is the product of opportunity, timing, lighting and perspective. I look for lines, color, framing and expression. The most mundane item can have an exciting personality when taken out of context by standing alone. A stack of lumber can be more than a sum of its parts when it creates lines, shadows and textures. A captured expression can turn a portrait into a story. Little Falls is a treasure trove of ‘Kodak moments.’”
