Okotoks Municipal Centre
Fragility of Nature
Exhibition dates: January 1 - February 28
"As a longtime photographer I find myself time and again attracted to images offered by nature. I think facing many people during my work, dealing with their problems, leads to my desire to escape into the outdoors. But hiding under my dark cloth, composing a photograph on the ground glass, contemplating the effect of light and shape, I also worry: will nature as we know it still be here for future generations, will nature survive meddling by us humans? A result of my concerns is the title for this exhibition: “Fragility of Nature”
The final outcome is a series of gelatin silver fiber based black and white photographs (prints) exploring nature as I see it. These photographs are taken with a 4” x 5” format film camera, all archivally hand processed by myself, to museum standards."
A selection of Hans' photographs can be seen at www.gelsilver.blogspot.ca
The exhibit is part of the Art in the Hall program, organised by the Okotoks Art Gallery and the Town of Okotoks.
