On Exhibit at the Providence Center for Photographic Arts
I’m pleased to announce that one of my “Holding Back the Water – Quabbin Reservoir” images has been chosen for inclusion in the Providence Center for Photographic Arts upcoming Exhibition, “Unseen Photography Beyond the Visible.” The Exhibition features work from the infrared and ultraviolet ends of the visual spectrum, revealing structure, shape and light that we don’t normally see. I was drawn to this kind of photography particularly in my efforts to understand the interaction between the great dam and dike that hold back the waters of the Quabbin Reservoir, and the New England countryside. Engineering melds into foothills, and beyond. This is the spillway through which overflow water from the Reservoir flows. You’ll note that there wasn’t much flowing when this image was created, and there still isn’t much flowing now. The level of water in the Reservoir is higher, but still not at 100%. We will have to learn to live with more uncertainty about what keeps us alive, particularly in the current political, dare I say, climate. There will be a opening reception at the on April 20 from 5 – 9 PM. You can get directions from their web site, by clicking the link above. Thank you.
