This exhibit is entitled: A closer look : photographs in and around Northumberland County by Laura Berman and Brian Tyson. Part of the SPARK Photography Festival
Laura and Brian are two photographers with distinct approaches to their art form. While each has taken a closer look at the local rural landscape, Laura approaches the subject much like a painter might, packed with the emotional impact of portraiture, and Brian has his eye focused on cool-still architectural form. Both seek the beauty of the rural, and the two together shown here for the first time demonstrate ways of seeing that span binary distinctions between object and subject, between figure and ground, between heart and mind.
