WONDER by Francis Sullivan
(Click on image for larger view)

Francis Sullivan lives in a tiny, round, rotating house atop a small mound of earth surrounded by large trees on the outskirts of Victoria, British Columbia. Having worked in commercial printing for over twenty years as a digital imaging specialist & pre-press technician, he now operates a small photographic business specializing in digital fine art printing and art reproduction services. 

Francis is a self-taught photographer with over 40 years active involvement in photographic arts. He currently has a particular interest in the modern landscape: his explorations of rural and urban vistas reflect the influence of our contemporary culture, and he seeks out signage and graffiti, abandoned and discarded objects, cast-offs and cultural artifacts in an attempt at capturing the beauty, conceits and excesses of our present-day world.

His photographs hang in numerous private collections, and he has exhibited his work in various galleries in both group and solo shows in Canada and the U.S.A.

BREAK TIME with Chelle Delaney

Chelle Delaney says, "As well as exploring my local venues, such as these images from San Antonio Livestock Show, I love driving and wandering through the landscape and finding images that voluntarily offer themselves up from the natural and manmade environments. My concentration and distillation of these found elements are what I believe are often imprinted in memory. These sometimes full cinematic and scant imprints range from the odd juxtaposition of street work, to the graphic, and to the painterly that are captured in memory and reshaped over time."

Chelle Delaney graduated from the University of South Carolina where she studied English Literature. She later attended the School of Visual Arts and the Southwest School of Arts in San Antonio, Texas, to study photography. Her interest in photography grew out of her work as a print reporter and editor for newspapers, and trade and regional publications.

STRIPES by Barbara Hayden

Barbara Hayden says, "My first mentor was my father, a professional photographer, WWII US Army trained. His studios and darkrooms were my playgrounds and classrooms for lots of photo magic. The School of Visual Arts (NYC 1968-1971) provided my formal education. 

I am a Street-Shooting-Purist because my images are not posed nor studio lit. I aim to catch the quick glimpse of ordinary moments barely noticed.

Having been widowed twice, at 25 and 34 years old, my passion and involvement with photography abruptly halted while my healing and regrouping led me into the Deaf Community and a 30-year career in the field of education.

When technology made photography possible without a darkroom, I was focused and ready to reconnect. I bought a quality printer, editing software, and a DSLR (now OMD mirror-less).

I especially enjoy the crowds at the Rose Bowl Swap Meet and Grand Central Market in Los Angeles and anywhere in Manhattan.

All 3 images are from my early “Classics” portfolio, circa 1970, NYC. portfolio, circa 1970, NYC."

BUSH FROM MINOR REVELATIONS by Alyssa Fujita-Karoui
(Click on image for larger view)

Alyssa Fujita Karoui says, "I've learned that sometimes, when I walk around the city with my camera, I can tame the inner chatter in my mind. By looking attentively at ephemeral moments and seemingly insignificant objects of the everyday, minor revelations come to the surface, time flows in strange ways and sight becomes mysteriously heightened. My photographs are a conversation with the ordinary, a momentary access to a timeless present where unspectacular scenarios connect us to larger moments of clarity, intimacy and grace."

Karoui is a Japanese-Tunisian artist based in San Francisco. Alyssa left the corporate world of Information Systems consulting for the life-changing pursuit of photography. She graduated from the San Francisco Art Institute in the Fall of 2015 with a BFA in photography. Her images are invitations to pause, small meditations creating space for contemplation and reflection upon a shared perceptual existence.
