Robert Holmes to Speak at KSP June 2nd

May 16–June 12, 2016
Reception & Lecture June 2nd 6:30—8:30pm
KSP Learning Center Gallery

Keeble & Shuchat’s Learning Center Gallery features a show of images by noted travel photographer Robert Holmes (Travel Photographer of the Year 2015, Wine Photographer of the Year 2016). Mr Holmes’ travels have taken him around the world, from his native Britain to destinations as varied as Calistoga and Kathmandu documenting history, culture, food and wine. The images on display depict destinations from disparate corners of the globe but all feature a consistent vision; a sense of light, color, and detail that conveys the emotional character of the lives and places depicted within the scenes.

Inle_01182013_175Leica will host a reception for the photographer and Mr. Holmes with present an artist lecture on the evening of June 2nd. Mr Holmes, noted as a raconteur as well as a photographer, will speak about both his personal journey as an artist and the key elements that underpin a successful career as travel a photographer.  Whether it entails getting that key opportunity (an expedition to Mt. Everest), being photographically prepared, or simply dealing with the rigors of life on the road, he will speak candidly about both prospering as travel photographer and making the award-winning images that lead to being featured in National Geographic Traveler and New York Times.

Mr. Holmes will be available after the talk to answer your questions and autograph your books.

Robert Holmes career as a successful and prolific travel photographer has extended over 35 years.  He was the first photographer to be twice honored by the Society of American Travel Writers with their Travel Photographer of the Year Award and is the only photographer to be given the award 4 times, most recently for 2015. He received the international Wine Photographer of the Year award for 2016 out of a field of 7000 entries from 60 countries.

He has worked for National Geographic, Geo, Saveur, Wine Spectator, Life, Time and hundreds of other major magazines and international companies.  His stock catalog of over half-a-million images is represented for licensing by Getty.

His assignments have taken him from coverage of the 1975 British Everest Expedition for the London Daily Mail and Paris Match, to searching for snow leopards in the remote valleys of western Nepal for National Geographic Magazine, trekking into the rain forests of Borneo with Penan tribesmen for Islands Magazine and crossing the Great Indian Desert on camel for Departures.

Bob has illustrated over 40 books and he has regularly been one of the elite group of the world’s 100 best photojournalists invited to participate in the acclaimed “Day in the Life” series.

His passion for food and wine has led to extensive work in those industries including the illustration of 9 books on wine and 6 cookbooks.  More recently Bob has added film production to his talents and in partnership with Andrea Johnson has been producing videos for clients in the wine and hospitality industries.

Bill Lattin Exhibit Of Mere Being at KSP Gallery

Lattin HF2878

November 12—December 9, 2015
Reception: November 21st 1:00–4:00PM
KSP Gallery

Artist’s Statement:  As Edward Weston once said, “anything that excites me for any reason, I will photograph; not searching for unusual subject matter, but making the commonplace unusual.”  This exhibit, titled “Of Mere Being”, is a selection of my abstract black and white and color prints that celebrate form, texture and motion in the world around us.  For me, the successful image is one that evokes an emotional response each time it is seen – a mystery without end.

I have been photographing for over 30 years working in both the commercial and fine art areas.  My fine art images have won awards at the San Mateo County Fair and at Art in the Redwoods, and they are in private collections across the United States.

Bill Moy Exhibit at KSP Gallery

Pier

September 10—October 13, 2015
Reception: September 19th 1:00–4:00PM
KSP Gallery

Artists Statement: I have been photographing since I was 14 years old. I take primarily black and white images. Today I still use film for specific situations, but I use digital most of the time. My photographs are in the context of Street Photography, urban landscape, the urban environment and travel photography.

The photographs in this exhibition are a collection from several of my portfolios and projects. Photography is my way to communicate and express my inner feelings and emotions. The images are the visual expression of my feelings. I choose subjects that give me a sense of peace, tranquility and solitude. The images speak for themselves and I hope the viewers will take something from these images with them.

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.
