Richard Ten Dyke, Photographs

Richard Ten Dyke spent his professional life in engineering and finance, but has enjoyed photography as an avocation since childhood. "I used to go to camera club meeting with my father when I was ten to fifteen years old, and I still remember many of the comments made by the judges at at that time. I have found challenge, opportunity and inspiration by exploring the creative use of light." His work has been used for magazine covers, music albums, and for publicity by music and arts organizations.


Victor A Fried, Photographs

In addition to being an amateur photographer, I am a research scientist and Professor of Cell Biology. I view my avocation and vocation as aspects of the same passion. I was exposed to photography as a child through the 'Family of Man" exhibition at MOMA, NY. I learned photographic technique informally until relatively recently when I took a printing workshop with George Tice. This experience altered my technique in printing and shooting and has moved my work in new directions as I learned to see in new ways.


Henry Bismuth, Paintings

My theme is a complex interaction between memories and the idea of memory. The main subject, however, is always the light. As I symbolically gather the pieces of the puzzle to complete the picture, I have to find the subtle equilibrium between light and shadow. This is more important than the subject itself. The ordinary becomes extraordinary. The mystically abstract, the profoundly conceptual, and the metaphorical associations of disparate and recurrent images bear witness to the passage of time.
