Two Magical Places, Two Cultures, Two Photographers Exhibit at KSP

Two Magical Places

June 5—August 4, 2015
Reception: June 20th 1:00–4:00PM
KSP Select Gallery

 

Artists Statement: Magical places conjure both physical locations as well as spiritual spaces. So they can be exterior and interior journeys. They offer a chance to connect with a unique place, diverse people, unusual perspectives, and different ways of going about life.

These images offer a journey into an interior landscape, made possible by our effort in navigating distant lands, meeting new peoples, enjoying exotic foods, and discovering our similarities while celebrating our differences.

On display are images from Bali, Indonesia & Oaxaca, Mexico.

We hope that these images will inspire and invite you to embark on a personal journey of exploration into your own soul and to those mystical places that resonate in your own heart.

Go discover!

Please join photographers Charles Mujie and Michael Palma for a reception on June 20th from 1 to 4pm.

The exhibit will be on display from June 5, 2015 through August 4, 2015.

Beginnings I 2015 represents the journey of some of the earliest members of  the Richard Dischler Photo Workshops conducted in Palo Alto at Keeble & Shuchat Photography.

In mid-2009, Richard Dischler launched his first Previsualization Workshop at Keeble & Shuchat Photography. Dischler aimed to help budding photographers find and hone their inner photographic vision. Since that time, many of the workshop’s photographers have been published, exhibited in galleries and museums, and captured numerous prizes—both national and international.

This exhibit includes images taken by a few of the earliest members of the Dischler workshops whose abilities have matured over the years. Their work validates the unique creative process Dischler has developed and nurtured since the launch of the workshops six years ago.

The exhibit will be on display from June 11, 2015 through July 8, 2015.

Vintage Racing Photography @ Sonoma Raceway

Vintage racing is a uniqure motorsports experience. The cars are truly the stars which makes for a great photographic experience. We traveled to Sonoma Raceway on April 11 with an enthusiastic group of customers, and the support of Canon and Victory Lane to capture the excitement.

After a great day at the track the participants were invited to submit their best photos and come back to KSP to share the images.  KSP’s own Bill Graham gave a presentation on post production and we shared experiences.

Look for more Vintage Racing events coming this fall.
