A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words, and More!
Photography is more powerful than the title implies. In November of this year, members of the Pixel Photo Club will display photos in the gallery at the Twinsburg, Ohio Public Library. This will be your opportunity to see the works of some of the area’s top photographers in a single, convenient location. Pixel club members represent a wide range of interests and expertise.
Gallery showings provide both photographers and audiences opportunities limited only by one’s imagination and passion. In August 2014 I was fortunate to participate in a gallery showing. My contribution to that showing included a collage entitled “Two Faces of Charleston.” The two photos in the collage were taken during my family reunion in Charleston, South Carolina. The “magic” of the photo gallery experience, is that one or a series of photos, even when taken with no specific purpose in mind, can create a powerful story and message. The experience of taking the photos, and their meaning to me are expressed in a newsletter article which can be seen in the photo below

So a story that began with two unrelated photos, culminated in a revealing, thought-provoking, and emotional journey through History. My experiences, reflections and projections resulted in my article designed to educate and inspire.
Others would look at the same two photos, learn and visualize something entirely different. Still others might see absolutely nothing except for two photos. The beauty of photography is its ability to entertain, educate, inspire, and open the mind to unlimited possibilities; yet not require the observer to conform to any set of rules.
Please plan to visit the gallery during November. Updates for this month long event will be shared on this page. To view a brief Slideshow of our preparation for the previous gallery showing please click here!
