“There’s a story that when Michelangelo was asked how he created hisincredible masterpiece David he responded that he saw David in the
marble and just had to cut away everything that didn’t look like David.
Regardless of whether the story is true or not, I love the idea behind
it. A photographer has some different challenges to a sculptor but the
goal is the same – effective expression.”
Lewis Hine, Ansel Adams, Dorthea Lange, Edward Weston and William Henry Fox Talbot; all giants of photography whose work is recognized among the finest of its kind, will be on display in Canmore at Elevation Place. The Art of Black and White Photography – Historical and Modern Perspectives runs from Feb. 13-25. A reception will take place Feb. 14 from 7-9:30 p.m.
The Olympus OMD E-M5 and E-M1 are widely considered some of the best mirrorless cameras on the market. The E-M10 is the latest addition to the line, an entry level option with many of the best features from the E-M1 and E-M5. The Camera Store’s Chris Niccolls takes a look to see if this is a great entry level option, or if too many compromises have been made.
Opening night promises to be an unforgettable event with music, food, and a unique showcase of work.
