“Windows and mirrors offer photographers an amazing variety of creative options. A window can offer a reflected subject or be used as a framing element in a composition. A mirror can present two different realities simultaneously, or present an altered view of reality.” This is the preamble to the current exhibition at PhotoPlace Gallery in Middlebury, Vermont. This show, WINDOWS AND MIRRORS, runs from October 30th to November 29th – both in the gallery and online. (Online exhibition, gallery details and hours here).
The images for this show were selected by Elizabeth Corden and Jan Potts from the Corden/Potts Gallery in San Francisco – known and respected in the photo world as teachers and reviewers as well as gallerists.
My image “Texas Time”, was selected for the online gallery and the exhibition catalog. This image was taken (surprise) in Houston Texas through the window of a store selling neon light art – an open door inside the store reveals an open courtyard beyond, and the street scene behind is reflected in the window glass. There’s no manipulation or double exposure here. That’s as it came from the camera.
The exhibition catalog is available from Blurb, and can be seen here (…and ordered, if you like the show!):
There’s some great work here. Please take a look.
