 ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------FEATURED ARTIST

Sandy Bobrowitz, Photographer       

 

ARTIST STATEMENT:
If I needed to state an objective for taking pictures, it would definitely be to capture the moment. And I enjoy sharing that moment with others.
 
I discovered my love for photography quite by accident, while attending Alverno College as an older adult. In that photography class I learned a lot about what makes a good photograph and was reminded again of the elements of art. Up until that time I was not aware of how important it is to fill the screen with my subject matter and to zero in on what I'm trying to say or capture.
 
But my love of art began as a small child. I always enjoyed sketching and painting. My grandmother also played an important role in my artistic endeavors. I remember, as a youngster, leafing through a glossy magazine on her coffee table that showed the different seasons of the year, with colorful images, especially the brilliant reds and oranges of autumn. I was smitten by the boldness of the colors. Now, taking pictures as a grandma of 6, I start by saying "pretend I'm not here," as I am averse to posed pictures but will take them if requested.
 
I try to remember to keep two cameras in my car-one loaded with black and white film, the other with color. Which of the cameras I will use depends on what the subject matter is and how it speaks to me. I gravitate toward black and white for people or shapes/lines/contrast and color for things such as flowers. I only use 35 mm film at this point. Perhaps some time in the future I will go to digital, but I appreciate the clarity of the 35 mm. People often ask me what I like to take pictures of and there is not any specific thing. But I am constantly on the lookout for something that "speaks to me," that moves me in some way. I never use a flash, but rely on whatever natural/sometimes artificial light source is available.
 
Sandy's photographs will be shown on our Art Gallery Wall during February and March.
