Most individuals conversant in the language of art will recognize that photography is truly an art form. The photographer will understand the elements of lighting, framing, depth of field, composition, filters, and the like. Other photographers, today, will delve into the deep ocean of effects that can be created with digital processes such as Photoshop and other forms of digital manipulation. Rarer though, are those who master the art, bringing digital effects, chemical processing of negatives and prints, and using these to create entirely new forms and textures.
Such an artist is Scott Bulger, and his exhibit, Under Lock and Key, is an exposition of this art form. With individual prints that take the viewer on a tour of Scott’s limitless imagination, to scenes comprising countless individual images stitched together to form seemingly psychedelic dreams, this is a showcase of truly majestic photography.
Scott began his photographic career at the age of 12, when his grandmother appointed him family photographer. At age 16, he purchased his first 35mm camera, and his love affair has continued unabated. Today, Scott teaches photography at the college level, and has earned numerous awards and recognition for his skill in the art. He teaches many seminars as well as private lessons, and has been featured in numerous exhibits. Under Lock and Key will run through April 5th.
The Art Center is pleased to invite the public to this exhibit with an artists reception on Friday, March 8th, from 6pm - 9pm. Light refreshments will be served.
The Art Center located at 1 Washington Street, Suite 1177, Dover, NH
