Anne Thomson Photographer at Park Cafe on East City Art

Opening Reception: Sunday, February 27 from 5:30pm to 6:30pm

From Ann Thomson:
“My artistic desire is to create interesting and compelling images from the details, textures and patterns found in everyday life.  I look for the scenes many others pass by each day.  I often find myself staring intently at the ground or the side of a building.  I sometimes miss the main attraction while I am paying attention to a more intimate exchange.

I now use a Nikon digital camera.  I adjust only those elements, such as brightness and contrast, accessible in the traditional darkroom in which I was trained.  I prefer to work in black and white, but recognize that some images require color to tell their story.

I create my photographs to inspire all of us to look at the parts that make up the whole.  There are fascinating images all around us; it is only a matter of pausing to find them”.

The exhibition will run from the opening date through April 2, 2011.

Park Cafe is located at 106 13th ST SE, Washington DC right across the street from the eastern end of Lincoln Park. To make reservation call 202.543.0184 or visit their site at www.parkcafedc.com.
