WASHINGTON DEPOT – The Washington Art Association’s “Ways of Seeing” exhibition, on display from October 23 to November 12, features the work of photographers Lazlo Gyorsok, Sallie Ketcham, Catherine Noren and Vi Owens. Their images should be understood as individual artistic constructions or interpretations rather than replications of the subject, according to the art association.
From the art association: “We often hear serious photographers echoing Ansel Adams, the famous landscape photographer, that they don’t ‘take’ photographs, they ‘take’ them. The photographs presented in this exhibition illustrate this perspective. While there is a significant degree of overlap in the subjects these photographers have selected, and their aesthetic approaches also have points of similarity, they come from markedly different backgrounds and approach their work from varying perspectives. Many of the images in this exhibition are photos of landscapes or nature that testify to a marked interest in the play of the atmosphere on the territory. Nevertheless, four different ways of seeing are discernible in this exhibition.
