By Arts Editor Doreen Jung. A collection of photography by the members of the Abbotsford Photo Arts Club, the “Wandering Eye” exemplifies the skills and techniques of local photographers.
Pictured at right: Fragile Existence by Ginnie Frede.
Members of APAC gather from different walks of life and their diverse perspectives of the world shape much of their work. Ginnie Frede captured her image “Fragile Existence” on a on a hike on the Heather Trail in the Subalpine Meadows of Manning Park.
From the carefully directed use of light and shadow to shape their images to the spontaneous ‘lucky shots’, the photographers delight in capturing moments in time. Many handle their lens with tender ardor because it gives them a voice; it gives them insight, and it gives them creative energy. Eileen Depeel saw a surreal view on the sand dunes in Death Valley just as the sun was rising.
The exhibit provides a glimpse of diverse works by photographers with a wandering eye. Whether their photography focuses on portraiture, landscape, abstracts, or action, they all share a passion in the pursuit of compelling images. They experience creative satisfaction from a dedication to their art. Membership in APAC has helped them to sharpen their technical skills and develop their painterly eye.
