From Ancient to Modern: Classic Greek Architecture in Black, White and Blue

April 1 to 29, 2016

Opening Reception: April 1, 2016 (First Friday) from 6pm to 9pm

Photographer Steven Randell takes us to beautiful Greece with an exhibit entitled From Ancient to Modern: Classic Greek Architecture in Black, White and Blue.

The artist says, “These images show the interplay of infrared light and how it behaves beyond our normal perception. Infrared Illumination gives center stage to the white monuments and buildings of Athens and Mykonos normally seen against blue sky and blue-green ocean.

“All digital photos were taken with a modified Canon 40D SLR camera, making the sensor particularly sensitive to infrared light. Because this light has a different focusing point the lens has been permanently altered as well. These pictures were taken in Greece and the Island of Mykonos in November of 2015.

“Greece with its ancient and modern white toned monuments and architecture is perfectly suited for IR photography. Its cultural acceptance of homosexuality (although not represented in these photos) was one of many reasons I decided to embark on this journey.”
