February 12th- 6:30 pm -Opening of Winter Exhibit

7 pm- Program- “Photography as A Spiritual Practice” 
We will learn the techniques of vision that will help us to create meaningful images and to practice photography as a path to self-discovery. With the aid of a specially prepared sideshow, and lectures with many references to the masters of photography (Edward Weston, Ansel Adams, Minor White and Paul Caponigro) Ron Rosenstock will communicate the common thread of the creative process. 

From Ron’s recent artist Statement:
“Through photography I have sought to explore the space between the finite and the infinite. For me, photography is on the borderline, the veil between the known and the unknown….a search for what is beyond the doorway of perception. What draws me---what speaks to me----is the mystery."

Ron Rosenstock

Ron Rosenstock is a photographer and a teacher of photography who studied with Minor White in private workshops from 1967 to 1973.  His first one-person exhibit was in the Creative Photography Gallery at M.I.T. in 1972. Since that time Ron has had more than 150 exhibits in museums and galleries in the United States and abroad. He has published six books that feature his photographs and has written numerous articles for photography magazines worldwide..
Ron has been teaching photographic vision and photography as a spiritual practice since 1969. He says: “My photographs are an attempt to understand the process of creation. They represent a personal search for answers to which the questions as well as the answers are wordless.  I regard photography not just as a way of seeing but as a way of living, a search or an exploration.”
Ron has led international photography tours in Ireland, Iceland, Greenland, Italy, Scotland, Cuba, Bhutan, Peru, the Czech Republic and Vinalhaven, Maine, USA.  He has also been a member of the United States State Department’s Art for Embassies program since 1998.

"I fell in love with the art of photography when I was just 9 years old. The rich memories captured and claimed forever on paper fascinated me."
