Dream Canvas by Whitney O'Brien

Our third student exhibition featuring the travel photography of Whitney O'Brien:

When I take a photo, I am stopping time.  I am capturing a memory forever with a click of a button.  A single frame can capture more detail than I can remember.  My photography represents how I view the world, what impacts me and what I want to look back at.  They record my life in a way that is fun and rewarding.

France was full of famous sights and fictional monuments becoming real in my eyes.  The ancient architecture juxtaposed to the bustle of the modern city is a photographer's dream canvas.  The noise, the lights, the language, the food, the culture is what I try to capture so I can take the people who look at my photos back there with me.

  1. What I really enjoyed here is that you moved the focus upwards and away from the masses of people. By doing this, it is like a nod of respect to the structure and is also a knowing 'wink' (or clin d'oeil!)to everyone who has ever tried to take a photo 'above the maddening crowd'. Felicitations, Whitney.
