Curator's Statement

Photography allows us to reflect upon and re-present (in some imperfect, yet informative, way) a larger image of the depth and breadth of life in all its complexities. Photographs can come from the creation around us; from our intersections with one another; through our yearnings for vision and meaning; when we embrace the fullness of life; in our imaginations fueled by light, darkness, color, and characters and from so many of the directions in which our hearts and minds take us.  

In their diversity, the images selected for this exhibit demonstrate the various ways in which we might engage life the places where the past and future touch the present, and in so doing, spark a deeper conversation about their wide meaning.


We observers of these photographers are allowed to discern the deeper meanings beyond titles, locations, and dates. I trust that as we observe this exhibition, we will be led to other meeting grounds of imagination, memory, and wonderment. As is often stated: a picture is worth a thousand words. So is the promise within each of these images. We are invited on a quest to explore life as we live it a life which we yearn to explore. I hope that while we celebrate the work of these photographers, we might birth within us a love of the photographic journey, as we find the hope and promise that Advent brings to us, and to the world, yet again.
