H. DAVID STEIN: "SPOTLIGHT"
NOVEMBER 1 - DECEMBER 1, 2019
OPENING RECEPTION: SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 2, 3-6 PM
In this series of photographs Stein has “spotlighted” portions of the photograph by leaving them in color. He then alters the black and white remainder of the photograph to make features become more prominent or recede into the background. The juxtaposition of the color and “black and white” draw your eyes to the various elements of the photograph. The images are then either printed on metallic photo paper or aluminum giving a metallic sheen to the black and white elements of the photograph. The images Stein has created reinforce the very nature of photography.
When Stein retired as a professor of surgery, he took courses at the International Center for Photography with several well-known photographers in the New York area. By combining his surgical training which focused on minute variations of color and texture in the human body with the inspiration he received from some of the finest artsits in this medium, Stein has developed a unique way of seeing and reacting to the world around him with a distinctive aesthetic.
All the photographs on metallic paper are printed by Stein himself to assure consistent quality using only archival materials to insure the longevity of the art.
