And I Too Love the Light
Ode to Escher - Benedicto Monasterio, Catania, Italy by Sam Joyner
Ode to Escher - Benedicto Monasterio, Catania, Italy by Sam Joyner
April 15 - June 16
The photographs included in this exhibit, titled And I too Love the Light, by Tulsa photographer Sam Joyner were captured using film-based cameras. Joyner uses a large format 4" x 5" view camera or a Hassleblad medium format camera. Through the use of larger format photography, an image of higher resolution is produced. This allows for enlargements and smooth gradation without the grain or blur that would characterize similarly enlarged images produced from smaller film formats. The larger size of the film also allows for better control of the depth of field and therefore more photographic creativity.

Of Joyner's vision for his photography, the artist explains, "In spite of things dark and discouraging, the photographer's special challenge is to go beyond the cliches and stereotypes of our over-imaged, media-manipulated world and find the evidence of yes - to reveal scenes of awe, wonder, and curiosity with complete honesty - to find the quiet beauty of coherence, rhythm, and order." View more...
