ABOUT THE EXHIBIT
Discoveries is an exhibit of shapes and rhythms, people and places, anything that I thought might make a surprising photograph. My hope is that these discoveries will cause the viewer to pause a moment to contemplate the visual richness of the world around us.
While I freely added filters and textures when I felt they enhanced the mood or created a more painterly experience, all of the images are from actual photographs of real scenes that happened to catch my curious eye.
