Thursday June 20 @ FRANK, 6-8p
Featured Artist Peter Filene and guests present An Uprising of Trees.
Light refreshments will be provided.
Given my urban sensibility, I never expected to be shooting photographs of trees. But once the impulse hit, I became fascinated by two challenges:
- How to transcend predictable "oh how pretty" pictures?
- How to incorporate urban life?
So, I crisscrossed Chapel Hill/Carrboro for a month, outracing spring and craning my neck for answers. In this process, I not only became an ardent friend of trees. Ii also learned how the camera can translate them into art.
