As I noted previously, I had two photographs accepted into "Sacred Spaces/Holy Places" at "Nails in the Wall Gallery" at St. Luke's Episcopal Church in Metuchen, NJ. The exhibit will run until mid-May. The opening was postponed a week because of the 28" of snow we got last week!
The two images are shown above. The photograph of the pregnant Katya, from November, 2014, represents the source of all human life. Here her womb is the sacred space where this miracle is carried out. In the other, Inna is found outdoors, on a beach, the place where land meets the sea. She experiences the joy of this place while exposed to it. Made just before sunset, a time when many reflect on the day completed. Please click the images to scroll between them.
On the night of the snow, after attempting unsuccessfully to get ahead of my shoveling, I decided to play photographically. In the past people have commented that some of my body abstractions resembled candle smoke. I set up a candle, my flash with barn doors, and the camera with a macro lens. Some results are above. Please click the images to scroll through the full set. I used limited depth-of-field here and expect to try more of these, correcting that, soon.
