CHANGING LIGHT, WESTERN LANDSCAPES A Solo Photography Exhibition by Kay Larkin
Kay Larkin is the featured artist in the Silent Reading Room thru January.
Enthusiasm for art and photography led Kay Larkin to take many photography classes. Her career in Biology and use of photo-microscopy continued her photographic training. During this time, many of Larkin’s images were published in scientific journals and thousands were utilized for clinical diagnoses.
By nature, Larkin is an experimentalist who incorporates the use of shallow-depth of field and slow shutter speeds to convey impressions. Larkin likes to explore the relationships of subjects and their shadows and other optical phenomena. In particularly the photographer enjoys making panoramic images as a way to draw the viewer into the scene and convey a sense of space. Larkin states that her artistic inspirations are most linked to the late 18th and early 19th Century Luminist painters.
