Seeing And Feeling Reflections [Dundas Museum and Archives]

Seeing And Feeling Reflections
Presented By Rick Mckenzie, Rob Robichaud, Rolph King

October 7, 2017 - January 6, 2018

Rick, Rob and Rolph came together several years ago through a mutual desire to photograph the natural aspects of the Niagara escarpment, specifically the many  magnificent local waterfalls.

Since that time we have concentrated our focus on more than just the beauty of moving water but on what we each see and feel in this liquid medium.  By exploring our inner feelings along with the play of light on rivers, lakes, still ponds and puddles in the form of reflections, we have attempted to express something personal yet tied to a common theme.

Rolph’s abstract reflective photography, Rob’s selective focal and exposure techniques and Rick’s use of composite imagery have each contributed in a different way to our vision and fascination with water.  In many respects these images continue to highlight our beautiful region in our own unique fashion.
