Pathways and Passages

A good photograph is knowing where to stand. – Ansel Adams
A corollary to Adams’ statement could be “A good photograph is knowing where to walk”. We’ve all been in places, or ob-served places, where we feel pulled into the scene; where the road, path, river, bridge, tunnel, passageway, lane or ray of sun compels us to see where the way will lead. There’s a mystery in it, the fascination of finding out what lies beyond the limit of vision, in the realm of imagination.

Pathways and Passages is both literal and metaphorical. We are confronted by what lies ahead and where we've come from. We see what is immediately at our feet or impossibly far away. Before us is what is known and unknown. Before us is something new, perhaps unexpected, an adventure — or the warm embrace of home and the familiar. And occasionally there are impediments in our path. How will we overcome them?
I was pleased to see in this selection that the photographers so seamlessly blended form and content — and led the eye not only through a three-dimensional space, but around the two-dimensional plane of the picture. They deftly handled color and chiaroscuro equally and balanced fact and mystery in order to engage the viewer and leave us wanting more.
