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!

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.
