I have written about the Orchis exhibit opening with a lot of photographs. The photos showed the hanging prints on the walls and the visitors during my talk. In this short post, I will share the individual photographs on display for my family and friends who could not be here to see the exhibit. The digital presentation is no substitute for seeing the actual prints as they also offer a physical presence, the glow of the paper, and the printed photographs.
A 360º Virtual Tour
David DeMelim, the gallery manager, created a 360º virtual tour with multiple angle views, including one of the inner gallery. If you view, click-and-drag rotates the view angle, and so do the arrows.
A Local Art Critic Writes
Michael Rose is a local, multi-talented art professional who writes a column in the local e-paper, GoLocalProv. He recently wrote about me and my work on exhibit. If you like to read his views, follow this link.
The Orchis Floral Collection
These are some of the seed photographs that gave birth to the ballet. They are in the order of appearance on stage in the video I created for the performance. In the video, there are many more, but these characters are much more visible than most.
The Orchis Stage Collection
I have taken many photographs of the live performances. This small collection makes up the highlights that reflect the ballet-flower connections starting with the opening scene and ending with the grand finale.
The Response Collection
This small set reflects my original idea of a dancer responding to the images. Mindaugas Bauzys, with some coaching from Misha, posed in response to a few flower photographs. I processed these photographs the same way I processed the flower photographs to keep the connection.
I hope you enjoyed this virtual exhibit. If you are in Providence, stop by to see the prints at the RI Center for Photographic Arts. I assure you, the experience will be far more enhanced.
