Moment#8–Mother and Child

Last week Dale Schmitt and I opened our photo exhibition, Moments and Souls at the Percolate Gallery in Pittsburgh. I realize that many of you can not make it in to the gallery so over the next few weeks I will be publishing “the moments” that were my contribution to the show.

This image was taken in 2014 on a beach in Cancún Mexico where everyday there is a beautiful moment at sunset.

Moment and Souls Opens Tomorrow

Moments and Souls opens tomorrow at the Percolate Art Space and Gallery located at 317 S. Trenton Avenue, Pittsburgh, PA 15221. The exhibition runs 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

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.

Autumn in Praha

In so many ways, Praha (Prague) reminds me of Pittsburgh my hometown. There is a large Czech population in Pittsburgh and our ethic foods and culture has a definite Czech, Polish and German connection. The hills around the Czech Capitol are also reminiscent of the hills around Pittsburgh. The autumn colors make me think of home.

Taken in October 2016 from the park surrounding Prague Castle.
