TONNARA DI SCOPELLO, SICILY, ITALY, Cheryl Slechta
The artist looks deep into the subject matter to find new ways of viewing which results in another level of perception and understanding …
My photography is influenced by my life-long love of art.  My path is two-fold at the moment – vintage black and white images as presented here and black and white abstract, minimalist images found in nature and architecture.
I am enamored with the early photographers – Steichen, Stieglitz, Doisneau, Kertesz, etc. and they have led me down my black and white/film path.  I use my wonderful plastic Holga TLR film cameras which are square format and the whimsy of the unexpected lighting and focus variations lend themselves to my artistic vision.  I also use my iPhone with various apps to recreate the same vintage look.  To me, the ancient beauty of the Old World begs for this treatment.
Now through December 31
