MARIANNA ARMATA: A FRESH PERSPECTIVE ON MACRO PHOTOGRAPHY

armataNewspaper Waves

Marianna Armata has been a professional graphic designer for over 30 years, working in Montreal, Toronto and Vancouver. She is also a self-taught international award winning photographer. 

Marianna most enjoys macro and conceptual photography but she loves to challenge herself to capture and create something new and distinctive every day. "We are all unique individuals. We each see the world in our own way, and it's our duty to both show and celebrate that difference. It's a sad day when I don't take my camera for a walk!" 

Her presentation will feature examples from her various macro portfolios: paper, miraculous mushrooms, and photo collages from her recent foliage and shell series.

ARTISTIC AND EXPRESSIONIST PHOTOGRAPHY

Lorraine Fernando
 
An enchanted evening with two artistic and expressionist photographers!

Lorraine Fernando has photographed for 10 years and is mostly self-taught. She will share her approach to creating expressive images that are painterly and enigmatic. With each image, she invites you to create your own story. In her work, she combines a variety of in-camera and post processing techniques. A self-confessed pixel-bender, she will speak about how she captures and then uncovers and highlights the image data in ways that take her images into surprising and unexpected directions.  http://www.lorrainefernando.com

Maryann Varley is currently teaching at the Ottawa School of Art and the Shenkman Arts Centre. Maryann will share her fine art work that bring together drawings and photo snap shots collaged with other papers into a painting. In her Manhattan series, Maryann layers drawings in pencil and ink on tissue paper, combined with painted elements in response to emotions captured by the photos. As photographers and artists, we will leave this presentation looking at our digital image library in a very different and unique way. Visit her website for a sneak preview of Maryanne's creative work.  http://mavarley.ca

MARIO CERRONI: WHAT PHOTOGRAPHY TEACHES ME ABOUT PEOPLE, RELATIONSHIPS AND EMOTION

cerroni
cerroni-havana-8757
Mario Cerroni uses photography as a way to relate to the world and to try and show his viewers some of the inherent beauty that he finds in the rhythms and patterns that he sees in nature, architecture, and everyday life. Much of what he perceives involves an aspect of personification, where he sees human emotion and experience in the scenes that he photographs. His presentation will involve a series of photos along with poems/thoughts that he has written which explore the stories and themes that he sees in what he's captured.
