Southerland’s nature and nocturnal images featured in North Wing Gallery
Release Date: 8/24/2006. Expired: 10/14/2006
Nature and nocturnal photographs by Jon Southerland will be exhibited in the North Wing Gallery of The Renaissance Center in Dickson Sept. 1-Oct. 14.
An opening reception will be 6-7:30 p.m. Friday, Sept. 1. The exhibit and reception are free and open to the public.
A lifelong resident of Dickson County, Southerland captures the beauty of nature that is often overlooked by most viewers in his first solo exhibit. Through the camera he is able to rediscover brilliant compositions reflecting the coexistence of nature and man.
Most images captured during the day make use of only properly calculated sunlight and not artificial light. Aside from his strongly composed sunlit images, Southerland also captures those images in the darkness of night that are not visible to the naked eye.
Since Southerland uses mostly natural light sources, he relies on a subtle source of ambient light to illuminate his nocturnal subjects during his long shutter exposures. Through experience he is able to capture and share with viewers the unseen beauty and colors of what we normally only see as darkness.
