Another successful opening reception at the Griffin/DSI Gallery

Thanks to everyone that came out last night to our gallery reception with photographer Ron Rosenstock. Despite the heavy rain that started around 4:30, we had a great turnout for the event. This is our second opening and I am pleased with how successful the response has been for our gallery. We had well over 75 people during the evening. Dave's Fresh Pasta of Sommerville provided us with some excellent hors d'hoeuvres and wines.

Ron spoke with many of the guests and had an opportunity to discuss his new work in digital infrared photography. The 11 gelatin silver fiber prints represent a new direction for Ron. He was a student of Minor White's at MIT from 1967 - 1973. White did a lot of his work using Kodak 4x5 infrared film, but Ron did not start working with infrared until he converted a Canon digital camera to shoot in IR. "The ability to shoot IR digitally, without all the hassles of shooting it on film, gives me a new found freedom", say Rosenstock. "The fact that I can then have them printed on one of my favorite black & white silver papers at DSI is a perfect match."
