"Show Me What You're Made Of"
D Randall Blythe
Opening Reception:
Saturday, May 2nd. 8-11pm
GALLERY HOURS: 12-7PM DAILY

Artist Statement:
I am consistently compelled to shoot photographs when presented with two very different subjects and/or situations: 1) humans (including myself) in a heightened emotional state, and 2) natural landscapes which instill a feeling of calm within me. Neither are static things created in a studio setting; both are organically occurring "movements" (people are in a constant stage of change, and even landscapes differ in appearance from second to second with light, wind, waves, etc.). I merely capture these movements when the opportunity arises. My shooting methods for these two types of photographs are polar opposites; quick and spontaneous for human subjects, slow and meticulous for landscapes. As a writer and musician I create with specific intent-- I wish to clearly convey some point I deem important or strong emotion I am feeling with my words and songs. My approach to photography is very different-- the act of photographing is a striving for balance within me, an attempt to learn to be a bit more objective about the world and my place within it. Camera in hand, I train myself to mentally and emotionally slow down, step outside an unfolding situation, and capture the actuality of it without injecting my own very subjective views of what it should be. While I edit my photos to suit my personal aesthetic (I primarily enjoy black and white images), the meaning of these photos becomes apparent to me only in hindsight-- I did not create them, I just took the time to notice and capture what was already there.
