Show and tell
An evening of spirited discussion and revealing insight into three photographers’ aesthetics take place at Photo-eye’s FirstWednesday Photography Salon from 6:30 to 9 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 2.
In Night Garden, Julie Dean, who graduated with a degree in photography from The University of New Mexico and is currently a freelance photographer, uses moonlight as her sole source of light within the confines of her residential property. Her pictures exude an otherworldliness far removed from the comforts of the backyard. David Ondrik is also a graduate of UNM and was nominated for the 2009 Santa Fe Prize for Photography sponsored by Center — a local nonprofit that promotes excellence in photography. His landscapes combine digital and analog mediums, as well as mixed media. He presents his recent series, Bosque— Photographs of the Río Grande. Born in Vancouver, self-taught photographer Jock McDonald has recently moved to Santa Fe from New York. His portraits of rural life from around the world have been published and showcased in galleries and museums in Cuba, Mexico, Russia, and Ukraine, as well as in the United States. He shows a sample of his black-and-white photographs and screens his short film OneWorld Portrait. Photo-eye Gallery is at 376-A Garcia St. The salon is free. For details, call 988-5152, Ext. 112.
