Gallery presents the juried photography exhibition:
UP CLOSE & PERSONAL
Macro and Close-Up Photography
CALL FOR ENTRIES
Saturday, April 13, 2013
OPENING NIGHT RECEPTION:
They say context is everything, and nowhere is it
more true than close-up (macro) photography. If photography's basic
reason for being (de etre) is to show the unseen and overlooked, then
nowhere is there more photographic opportunity then getting down and
dirty with a macro lens and documenting the flotsam and jetsam of the
human experience. Ernst Haas did it with soda cans crushed on the
street and peeling paint. Other photographers close in to shoot flowers
and gems, nails and bullets, or raindrops and snowflakes. And of course
there is the whole macabre world of bugs and bacteria. Whatever you
shoot, whether the cornea of your lover's eye or the time worn face of
Thomas Jefferson on a quarter, or the tiny gears inside your
grandfathers watch, send it in to 1650 and let it ride, because this
month we get all up into photography's grill with UP CLOSE &
PERSONAL: Macro & Close Up Photography!
