photo exhibit at FPL through April 4


Once you really commence to see things, then you really commence to feel things.
Edward Steichen

All art requires courage.
Anne Tucker

I hate cameras.  They are so much more sure than I am about everything.
John Steinbeck

Friendswood Public Library is pleased to present recent photographs selected by David McClain, instructor at the Glasscock School of Continuing Studies at Rice University and Houston Community College Southeast Campus.

Many of the images were made in classes at these schools; others are works by established artists working in the medium of photography.  All of the photographers work in and around the greater Houston area.

The exhibit makes no effort to distinguish between the works of students and professionals.  Elliot Erwitt, winner of the International Center for Photography’s Infinity Award for Lifetime Achievement and former president of Magnum photo agency, wryly noted, at 82, “I’ll always be an amateur.” It is the continuing interest in humanity – the comedy, the tragedy and the beauty of it – that makes a good photograph.  The selected photographs show an interest in using photography to help explore that strange condition known as humanity.

The Exhibit will continue through Thursday, April 4th.
