David Becker, Born in Louisville, KY in 1960, was inspired at a young age by a love of the outdoors and a world as seen through the pages of National Geographic. His hope is that these found images will show both the beauty and fragileness of our environmental and societal surroundings. Becker says “Art is an act of discovery. Finding perspectives that evoke an emotional response is what drives my exploration. As a photographer I work hard to make images that freeze both time and space. Working with both color and monotone images I use space, negative space, shapes, line, tonality or color as the primary object of the image”.
David Imbrogno, former director of Bernheim Forest, artist and naturalist. His photographs are an exploration in noticing, and focusing on the natural world using photo essays, observations, photo/word poems and some random thoughts. David’s exhibit and lecture will be based on the One Hundred Days Project. “This year I am making a commitment to chronicle these mini-journeys with one hundred unique stories and photographs, from one hundred different days, all from my own little home. Join me in this exploration of staying put, being who you are, and perhaps most importantly, being where you are,” said Imbrogno.
David Modica expresses his personal vision in black and white film and prints in a traditional darkroom. He enjoys capturing places and buildings of historical significance as well as the urban landscape. Modica’s personal work tends to be thematic and project-based. He enjoys capturing places and buildings of historical significance as well as the urban landscape. The work in the exhibit was inspired by a recent trip to Modica, Sicily.

For this photography exhibit, Raber juxtaposes portraits of artists, teachers, and friends with images that reflect their passion. Stone Carvers, Weavers, Dancers, and yoga are just few of the areas that her images explore. The exhibit will also feature images from Raber’s personal pilgrimage in 2016 on the Camino de Santiago trail in Spain. Raber will be speaking about her journey of discovery and how it has affected her work and life at a lecture on October 5 from 6-7:00 pm at Brick Street Studio.
