Debashish Basak, originally from India, got fascinated with nature photography from his childhood. He was raised in different regions of rural India, which gave him opportunity to explore the scenic beauty of the countryside. His love for nature and his mother’s love of gardening gave him the passion for photography.
An Electronics & Computer Engineer by profession, he indulges in his passion of photography at every opportunity he comes across. His main themes are Landscape and Macro photography. He prefers keeping his photos as pure as possible without any major enhancements through any software.
Debashish started using the family camera (Yashica) from 1982 and experimented with it. He has never attended any professional photography course, but improved himself on field experimenting and learning the hard way.
Encouraged by his wife-Ruma, son-Debarshi and various close friends, he has transformed from a hobbyist to a serious amateur, covering various events.
The exhibit at Keeble & Shuchat Photography showcases his long journey in his passion for photography.
Exhibit: November 15-December 12, 2012
Reception: November 24 1-4 pm
Recognized for his relentless pursuit of time, place & beauty, a camera travels everywhere and anywhere Bill travels. Never merely just “a camera”; an 8 x 10 view camera 200 miles from the nearest Alaskan arctic village, the ten minute exposure in the main isle of Wells Cathedral, even night after night wandering the streets of London with Hasselblad & tripod over his shoulder.
Bill’s mediums of choice remain the silver gelatin and platinum print. Using the natural divisions of the Keeble & Shuchat gallery, “AnyPlace, AnyWhere & AnyTime” presents three distinct and unique photographic projects. On the gallery main wall are “Wild Rivers” & “Wilderness”. The “Wilderness” images are selections from his 2006 show, “Yosemite in Platinum”. While the “Wild Rivers” are prints for a new book project, Along the Wild Rivers. Across the room hang powerful images from his 2007 show and book, USS Nimitz: Tiger Cruise. In the hall is a UK architectural showing, some new, some from “London Nightscapes”.
Exhibit: September 13-October 10, 2012
Reception: September 15 1-4 pm
Vista Closed and Current Works presents images from The Collective Obscura, a group of like-minded artists and photographers exploring the interaction of humans, nature and society. In this show the group reflected on how our state parks function as society’s last shared reservoir of memories, harmony and sanity. We combined this presentation with a mixed assembly of images meant to show a little of each artist’s individual work in progress.

Reception: August 12 1-4 pm
Artist’s Statement: Tom & Marj create fine art Black & White photographs that reflect both the rural man-made and urban industrial worlds around us. Scenes from 50 or 100 years ago are often chosen for their appeal and because they are best portrayed in Black & White. This can be a western ghost town, an abandoned factory, an old steam locomotive, or a derelict automobile.
Tom’s images are taken with an infrared camera, with some presented in his newly created digital solarization process. Marj’s images are taken in color and converted to black and white in the digital darkroom.
Stan Cacitti’s exhibit, Witness to the ’60s will be on display at our Gallery from July 12 to August 8, 2012. Mr Cacitti will also host a reception on July 29th.
