"Visions," a student group exhibition of digital photographs, will hang in the College Gallery at Western Nevada Community College Bristlecone Building, through Friday, Jan. 12. The exhibit features images from five Advanced Digital Photography students: Danny Heiderman, Melissa Rempe, Claudia Rios, Karen Tillitt, and Sharon Woodburn.
Heiderman's urge to take pictures stems from his need to capture imagery in a certain way. "To draw attention to the subject, I use visual cues such as unique angles and framing," he said. "Knowing how to approach the photograph and understanding the best time and condition to take it creates interesting material."
Rempe takes photographs to briefly become self-aware. "I photograph to be myself - creative, analytical, smart, different, funny, practical, impulsive," she added.
Rios likes to capture a moment in time that one will never forget. "A moment that means more than you think," she said. "My vision is to see what others won't."
Tillitt feels "Visions" means taking the time to look at things differently. "Take in the whole, but perhaps examine only a small part of it; considering color, texture, lighting and composition to create an 'other reality' through the photographic lens."
Photography gives Woodburn a new perspective in observing her environment. "Nature's intricate beauty inspires me to photograph it, so I can share it with others," she said. "Images I create digitally challenge the viewer to figure out how it was done."
A reception for the artists is scheduled for Thursday, Dec. 7, 4:30-6:30 p.m.
