THE GALLERY OF THE UNITARIAN UNIVERSALIST FELLOWSHIP
THE POETRY OF PHOTOGRAPHY –
AN EXHIBIT BY ROLF OLSON
OCTOBER 3-OCTOBER 25
Rolf Olson sees unique situations in nature. He isolates minimal aspects into photographic impressions. “The awareness and appreciation of form, light and space have always been an integral part of my life”, he explains. “These days my eye often catches intriguing situations as I move through my daily routines. I carry my camera with me as often as is practical and take the time to document what I have noticed. I try to concentrate on the interesting element in the scene in a way that evokes a novel response in me. Perhaps I notice some emotional content or odd juxtaposition between elements. Hopefully there will be more content than just the object itself although I don’t always know exactly what the content might be for me until I see it out of context”. He tries to compose and frame the photo without digital manipulation and minimal cropping. He shoots with an older Canon Powershot S3 IS and he “continues to learn the art of photography”.
Rolf graduated from Colorado College with a degree in Philosophy. He has enjoyed many pleasurable hours exploring art museums around the world. He lives in Door County and has been a craftsman in wood and metal for 25 years. He is currently the resident manager at a destination hotel. He enjoys writing poetry and composing his photography.
