The Center for Fine Art Photography Proudly Presents, the Illuminate Exhibition: Thirty-one international artists were selected for the Illuminate exhibition by juror Peggy Sue Amison, Creative Director for East-Wing in Dubai. Amison states, 'Light is the soul' of photography -- its presence or absence shapes not only the artist's narrative, but also has the power to drive emotions and evoke curiosity in both maker and viewer.
The tools of film, paper and process collaborate with light, harnessing the ephemeral and giving it voice, opening a door to a place where boundaries between reality and fiction can slip and slide, often in unimaginable ways... This final exhibition of Illuminate is meant to be experienced as a journey through light, but the works also reflect a wide dynamics of vision and experience, similar to how one would hears different pieces of music. I expect the audience will experience the works in ways the artists may have never intended, but this is the ultimate magic of photography - how it allows all of us to put ourselves into the picture, connecting with the maker in a new experience that moves and changes us. --Peggy Sue Amison
