Art Wall - Opening Reception

Our own Gerald Saldo will host the Opening Reception for his photography show, Capturing Humanity, on Sunday, July 9 from 11:00 am – 12:30 pm. This exhibit will run through July 30th and is open on Sundays from 9:30 am – 12:30 pm and on weekdays by appointment through the office.  Additional prints will be available at the reception. After spending 40 years behind movie cameras, he has returned to his first love – still photography, but with a twist.
For this show Saldo has selected works from his ‘Pixelism series,’ these photos come directly from his camera. All the works in the show were done without filters and or compositing; Saldo refers to them as “Digital Originals.” Sharpness and focus rarely come into play, it’s all about color, shape and form. In order to achieve a Compressed Watercolor feel, Saldo uses Low Resolution combined with high digital zoom—this helps smear the colors. Many of the images were captured from three miles away. Saldo often discovered interesting compositions with binoculars; he then lined up his camera with a fluid head tripod. He says, “With a fluid head, I am able to move smoothly, constantly composing, rapidly releasing the shutter, feeling the passion, hoping for that magic moment when I know I have captured humanity.
