This is a free public event at Endeavor Arts Gallery located at #200, 1209 1st S.W. in Calgary from 5:30pm to 8:30 p.m.
The As We See It Photo Exhibit provides Calgarians with an opportunity to gain insight into the work of international development and humanitarian aid organizations as they share images of people, places and issues they address around the world.
Photographer Steve Speer will recount his most recent visit to China.
Speer will recount his most recent visit to China in the capacity of documentary photographer for humanitarian organization Eco Village of Hope Society.
On this trip he visited four leprosy colonies where he photographed the daily lives of people struggling to cope and eke out an existence with the barest of means.
He will discuss his role as a documentary photographer as well as the importance of strong photography and graphic design in conveying messages and bringing about change.
Steve Speer is a Calgary-based photographer whose work hangs in many corporate offices and private residences nationally and internationally.
His primary interests are rural and urban landscape and environmental portraiture. Although Speer shoots and exhibits some imagery in colour he prefers to display his photography in black and white as he feels that when you strip away the “crutch of colour” only the key elements of composition and quality of light remain. When these elements come together, the resulting image evokes a response on an emotional level and brings about a greater connection with the viewer.
This free, public photo exhibit can be viewed for the month of February 2012 as part of Exposure Calgary Banff Canmore Photography Festival at Endeavor Arts Gallery, Tuesdays to Saturdays between 11am and 5pm.
