 Eyes-dazzling local photo exhibit unveiled

If your eyes are bored from the gray early-January southeast Michigan landscape, you can give them a treat by visiting Canton’s Village Theater at Cherry Hill now through Jan. 29.

The venue is hosting a photography exhibit entitled “Collective Expressions in Photography”, which features works by members of the Ann Arbor Camera Club.

Among the off-the-charts-cool images are a photo of the Joe Louis fist sculpture in downtown Detroit like you’ve never seen it before, a slick shot of the grill of a vintage truck and a snow-swept countryside photo that will chill your bones (in a good way) just by looking at it.

This open-topic exhibit represents the photographic artistry of several members of the Ann Arbor Camera Club and provides a variety of work regularly produced by their members.

Photography’s finest on display

Ann Arbor Camera Club members believe that “photography is great art with opportunities for realism, experimentation, drama and simplistic form.”

Exhibit artists include: Terrance Alexander, Gerri Barr, Howard Bond, Raul Campos, Regina Carriere, Pat Conner, Tom Egel, Lori Franzen, Larry Hoxey, Tim Kellman, John Lloyd, Keith Matz, Ann O’Hagan, David Patria, William Serrell, Scott Strodtman, James Whiteside, and Mary Whiteside.

Founded in 1956, the Ann Arbor Camera Club is dedicated and committed to the photographic experience – learning, experimenting, skill improvement, and providing inspiration to each other. They are an unaffiliated organization, which views photography as both an art form and hobby. As stated on their website, “the aim of the club is to promote growth, improve skills, and foster appreciation in the making of photographic images.”

Members of the Ann Arbor Camera Club are from southeastern Michigan and range in experience from beginners to professional exhibitors.

All types of photographers are represented in the club (landscape, portrait, wildlife, street, sports, macro, and more), as are all types of photographs (digital, film, color, black and white, and even large format).
