Staffer Presents Digital Photo Exhibit Through August
“256 Shades of Gray”, a digital photo exhibit, is the art display for August at the Stratford Library. New Haven artist Jim Duffy, who also serves on the library staff in its Technical Services Department, will showcase his work – a series of “black and white” digital photos highlighting New Haven locales. The exhibit is free and open to the public.
Photo repair artist Jim Duffy is the creator and operator of The Photo Physician. With all of the emphasis on smart phone and tablet photography today, he feels that black and white photography is an area that is sorely underutilized. “256 Shades of Gray” will feature a series of photos utilizing recent PhotoShop technologies that allow access to both the lightest and darkest levels (all 256) of the gray spectrum in the same photograph. Duffy invites viewers to share in the experience that a creative eye and thorough knowledge of PhotoShop provide. There will also be some color photographs as well as photos on both canvas and aluminum. Matted prints and a line of note cards will be available for purchase at the Library during the exhibit.
Viewing hours for “256 Shades of Gray” are Monday-Thursday: 10-8 and Friday & Saturday: 10-5. The art exhibit will continue through Monday, August 31 and is located in the Main Lobby of the Stratford Library, 2203 Main Street in Stratford, Connecticut.
