A very special exhibit is opening this week at Red Filter Gallery …
Bruce MacDougall grew up in Southern California, and began exploring photography at age 9 with a Kodak Brownie. While his passion for photography was temporarily put on hold to raise his family and care for disabled veterans, it came roaring back to the surface in 2001 when a friend contacted him and invited him to join “The Photo Boyz,” of Sacramento. He continued expanding from film and darkroom to digital and Photoshop, enjoying life as usual until 2010 when tragedy struck and his daughter, Molly, was murdered.
Bruce’s cathartic journey to rediscover the meaning and purpose of his life led him to China. As a result of this trip to the Orient, his work incorporates the ancient Buddhist derived philosophy of Wabi Sabi (later incorporated by the Japanese).
November 15 through January 6.
