About the event
The Way We See It features four photographers - Dan Burkholder, Jill Skupin Burkholder, Mary Ann Glass and Christine Irvin.
Dan Burkholder is a pioneer teacher and mentor for thousands of photographers by bridging the worlds of classic photography with the evolving digital era. The photos in this exhibit show how brilliantly Dan utilizes the fine art potential of capturing his images with both the iPhone and his smaller micro 4/3 cameras and then developing the image with phone apps. Dan’s poetic images show the viewer a mystical, spiritual world.
Jill Skupin Burkholder is a photographer/artist whose work includes traditional photography and photo images enhanced with cold wax, oil paint and beeswax. In the Hidden Worlds series, she set up a motion-sensitive trail camera in the Catskills to record the secret night worlds around us.
Each surveillance-style snapshot is mounted onto a wooden panel and coated with beeswax. These random compositions of nature seem to reveal a fairyland, an enchanted setting filled with light and spirit.
The Burkholders have for several years organized photography travel workshops (and continue to do so: they are going to Bulgaria and Romania next year).
Mary Ann Glass, co-curator of Gallery 40, and Christine Irvin, President of the Stamford Art Association, joined the Burkholder trip to the Peloponnese area of Greece in May, and are presenting what caught their eye during those 10 days in Greece. Using only their iPhone cameras and apps, visiting the same places at the same times, the two women's photos demonstrate how we each inhabit our own world.
