My wife Connie and I are co-curators for the exhibition. The show is from October 8th thru December 1st at the University Club.

The club hosts breakfast meetings, luncheon programs, private dinners, weddings, seminars and holiday parties.
The theme we selected for this exhibit is candid photography.
A candid photograph is a photograph captured through motion mostly, without creating a posed appearance. This is achieved by avoiding prior preparation of the subject and by either surprising the subject or by not distracting the subject during the process of taking photos. (1)
This exhibit, open only to photography is meant to display the opposite of today’s selfie culture. An example of this style may best be seen from the master of candid photography, Henri Cartier-Bresson, famous for the term, “The Decisive Moment”. This exhibit will feature works of photography only.
