Finally Autumn

Finally, Autumn has arrived although the show from nature may not be as great this year because of the warm and dry weather. Searching the archives I found this. Taken a block from our old house in the Delaware National Forrest. The Pocono mountains are exquisite this time of year.

Play Me

In every country we visited throughout Europe we found pianos in public places available for public performance. This one was inside the mall adjacent to the Central Station in Amsterdam. The piano was in tune and pianist actually knew how to play.

Moments and Souls Outtake #8

Along with Dale Schmitt of Pittsburgh, I am pleased to announce our photo exposition at The Percolate Art Space in Pittsburgh. The exhibition runs from November 8,2017 until December 2,2017.

Richard Burke and Dale Schmitt have over 80 years of combined photographic experience. They are both eclectic photographers with broad portfolios of commercial and artistic work. They photograph people but approach that part of their portfolio in completely different ways. Richard is all about capturing the decisive moment and Dale is a creator of portraits that capture the souls of his subjects.

Join us at the gallery to celebrate the human experience!

In order to whet your appetite we will be posting some outtakes. These are images that did not make the final cut for the exhibition but may be part of a book based on the show concept. This one was photographed in Pittsburgh during the 1972 Presidential Campaign.

Moments and Souls Press Release

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Carolyn Pierotti is please to announce a new photographic exhibition entitled Moments and Souls at the Percolate Art Space and Gallery from November 8, 2017 through December 2nd. The opening reception will be held on Saturday, November 11th from 6 – 8:30 p.m. at the gallery located at 317 S. Trenton Avenue, Pittsburgh, PA 15221.

Moments and Souls features the work of Richard Burke and Dale Schmitt. The two met as teacher and student at the Ivy School of Professional Art. Both are eclectic photographers, but the show focuses on their passion for photographing people. They approach their work of capturing people in very different ways.

Richard’s inspiration has often come the work of Henri Cartier-Bresson, who defined the concept of the decisive photographic moment. Richard uses a technique of taking pictures without looking through the viewfinder to get more honest expressions.

Dale’s inspiration has come from the revealing portraits of Yousuf Karsh. Dale’s portraits capture a person’s soul. These photographs show both the carefully crafted and deliberate portrait style of Karsh and the split second timing of a life moment àla Bresson.

For inquiries, please call Carolyn Pierotti at 412-477- 4540. You can also visit her website at http://www.purplepierotti.com/

Moments and Souls

Death in The Desert

The saguaro cactus species is native to the Sonoran Desert in Arizona, and the Mexican State of Sonora. It can grow to be over 40 feet and can live up to 150 years. They grow their first “arm” at 50 years of age

In 1994, Saguaro National Park, near Tucson, Arizona you can see thousands of these. Every now an then you will see a dead one. Wind, insects, lightning and old age are the natural enemy of the desert monolith. This one looks like it was struck by lightning and suffered a tragic death.
