The title for our December exhibition at the Atlantic Gallery in Chelsea is Primarily Color.
Color, by definition, is present in every color photograph but it is not always what the image is primarily about. When one first looks at a photograph, something in particular usually grabs the viewer’s attention. It may be light and shadow, texture, content or composition. In this show, it is color that takes center stage.
There are various ways in which color can be paramount in a photograph. It can define a mood and elicit an emotion from the viewer. It can highlight or isolate a particular subject. And, by fanciful alteration or exaggeration, color can turn the ordinary into something magical.
For this show, we are showcasing images that are defined by their exceptional or unusual use of color.
