Opening Reception / Artist’s Talk: Wednesday September 20th, 5:00 -7 PM

“Basilica View” – Gelatin Silver Photograph -16″ x 20″.

Roger Carl Johanson’s Gelatin Silver B&W Photographs attempt to blend a glimpse of scientific, sculptural, architectural and humanistic interests while exploring the artistic communities of Florence, Venice and Rome. He is not attempting to narrate a specific story, but hopes the viewer will envision his or her own dream story while viewing both realistic and abstracted imagery. Roger utilizes extremely select positioning and focus to isolate, emphasize, collect light and frame images that often leaves questions for the viewer.
