Artist’s Statement: Photographer Richard Dischler notes in asking those questions that many photographers believe they must travel to some exotic destination in order to capture meaningful photographs.

With those questions in mind, 16 local photographers were given a limited location to capture the images on display in this exhibit.

The photographers participated in one of two events early this summer. The first was a simple walk-about sponsored by Keeble & Shuchat Photography. The second was a Fair Stroll at the San Mateo County Fair sponsored by Keeble & Shuchat Photography and the San Mateo County Fair.

Many of the photographers are part of the Richard Dischler Photo Workshops at Keeble & Shuchat. The six-month and one-year pre-visualization workshops are aimed at guiding photographers to develop their ability to see strong photos before they snap the camera shutter.

The exhibit came about when Photographer Dischler challenged each participant in the recent events to capture six strong images in one hour. The walk-about participants were limited to the length of a local alley. The Fair Stroll participants had the entire fairgrounds to find their images.

The members of this exhibit extend their sincere appreciation to Terry Shuchat and the staff at Keeble & Shuchat for all of their support.
