The Valley Photo Center is pleased to announce an exhibition of the photographic work of Tim Jones and Ken Lee. The exhibition will run from February 26th through April 5th. There will be an artists reception on Sunday March 3rd from 2:00 5:00 pm.
Tim Jones is a large format (8x10 film) photographer based out of Sandy Hook, CT. He utilizes the 8x10 film format as it allows him to make contact prints the exact size of the film. Contact prints exhibit details and tones with a sublime beauty rarely seen in other forms of photography. Jones photographs may depict literal representations or a distorted reality depending on how he interprets the subject before his camera.
Ken Lee of Granby, MA is part of a long tradition of Large Format black and white photographers which goes back to Ansel Adams and Paul Strand. Ken's mentor was Fred Picker, with whom he studied as a teenager in the early 1970's. Ken makes landscapes, portraits, still life and botanical subjects, shooting a variety of vintage and modern 4x5 and 5x7 cameras.
The Valley Photo Center is located at Tower Square in Springfield, MA. on the second floor mezzanine level across from the City Walk food court. Gallery hours are Tuesday through Friday from 11:00 am to 2:00 pm. The gallery is closed Saturdays, but can opened by special arrangement by contacting gene LaFord at gene.valleyphoto@verizon.net .
