Lawrence Street Gallery announces its May exhibition, showing the work of member artist, photographer Arnold Berkman.
Berkman's major influence is the painter, Edward Hopper. Like Hopper, Berkman’s photography uses light to create an emotional mood, giving his photographs a pronounced painterly quality.
Berkman writes, “For me, the essence of photography is to see the moment, to respond emotionally to what I have seen, and then to use my eye and my camera so that others can see and experience the same."
"Winter on the prairie and the plains is harsh and lonely. Icy cold, bitter wind and thick morning fog infuse the landscape with a unique tonality and mood. In the quiet evening, the snow takes on the many colors of the high sky. Swiftly blowing wind sculpts the barren landscape into ever-changing shapes and textures. The prairie and plains in winter are desolate places, and desolation provides them with haunting beauty. Beauty within the mood of desolation is the experience that I hope to share.”
Arnold Berkman's photographs have been in many juried and solo shows throughout Michigan. His work has earned him several awards.
