Exhibit Update – Live on Monday!

Final steps to opening!

A quick update to all my wonderful blog readers, who may be wondering what the status of the print exhibit is.

This past Friday, we took a bit of time off from work to hang all the prints, progress of which you can see here…

Hanging the show

The hallway has great light and a good amount of foot traffic, as it is near a kitchen/snack area (the lure of food never hurts!).  You can see the gallery system that we decided on putting in place, so that future exhibits can be done flexibly and without damage to walls; I think the system looks really clean and professional.

Final step was to take some time this weekend to create reasonable looking info cards that I can put with each of the prints.  Thanks to the suggestion of one of my very talented friends with lots of print exhibit experience, I settled on printing labels and putting them on backing board for a pretty clean look.

Info cards are done!

The cards will go in place first thing in the morning, as the work newsletter is going out with a short write-up on this show to get more employee interest for this and future exhibits.

A Fresh Perspective Photography is more than just a vehicle for capturing the world around me; it provides me with a palette and a set of brushes, with which I paint not only what I see, but also look to express the emotions that are evoked by the scene in front of me in that moment. Growing up in the Netherlands exposed me to a wide cross-section of visual arts that laid the foundation of my photographic view of all that surrounds me. Early influences were the Dutch Masters of the 17th century, to whom I was introduced by my grandfather during museum explorations; favorites among them are the scenes of quotidian life depicted by Jan Steen and Frans Hals and the vivid landscapes of Jacob van Ruisdael. My classical high school education was supplemented by the Boijmans Van Beuningen museum, where I spent many a lunch hour exploring its great collection. Here I was introduced to surrealism with a particular love for the approach taken by Salvador Dali; Dali also rekindled my appreciation for the work of Hieronymus Bosch, who often showed the folly of us mortals. Universal Connections My approach to any photographic subject is to look for understanding first; in this I look to establish either a connection between the viewer and the subject or capture the connection of the subject with its surroundings. The captured image then aims to portray this connection from a perspective that is part of my personal interpretation. This interpretation is often a form of externalized introspection, which may alternately display the connection of isolated beings and items with their environment or highlight the whimsy of the profound world, in which we find ourselves. The universe is full of connections, many of which are waiting to be discovered; part of my journey as a photographer is to document these connections. Any assignment, be it an event, a product shoot or a portrait session is always approached through communication with the client; this is where the first connection is established. Ideas are exchanged and a collaborative plan of action forms, ultimately resulting in a set of images that aim to exceed the expectations of each client. And, lest we forget, it is important to have fun while practicing the serious business of photography!

  1. I was thinking of your Exhibit and then I roamed on your posts just in case I’ve missed it.

    I will stay tuned for the outcome of the Yoga Tree..how would she handle the credits? 🙂

    1. You’re actually a week behind in catching up… The show has been up for a week now and people have expressed a lot of appreciation for it. It’s really cool when people seek me out to let me know how much they like the show.

      Yoga Tree has decided to put on a very special show in about a month or so for all to behold, in celebration of her new-found fame 🙂
