The Gallery at The Gate
Rotating Art Curated by Brian Patrick Adams
January 15 – February 15
Jamaica Plain has been my home for over 25 years. I grew up on the North Shore of Massachusetts and have spent summers on the coast of Maine since the womb. My grandparents traveled the world and my grandfather presented narrated slide shows of their adventures. It was in my youth that I began to appreciate photography and what the medium can express.
In recent years I’ve transitioned from film to digital cameras and even my iPhone. I use the camera and lighting to create the effects I desire through extended exposures, ambient light, “light painting” ie flashlights, fire, etc., filters, fisheye lenses, or night time shooting. I have revisited black and white photography, breaking down the scenes to a simpler and more nuanced form. My upcoming show at The Gate Bar and Restaurant reflects my love of the coast of New England and its many moods.
