“In the hands of a photographic artist, the camera is just a tool, like a painter’s brush, a starting point toward achieving a creative vision, whether it is consciously planned or happens spontaneously,” said Professor Sherry Stephens, who curated the exhibition with Art Gallery Specialist Karla Walter.

Stephens also notes that much of what transpires between pointing the camera and finishing a print or editing a film is the actual artistic journey for photographers.

About The Center For Creative Education:

 

The Center for Creative Education is an educational nonprofit that strengthens the presence of the arts in the classrooms of Palm Beach County, Florida. Today, our Teaching Artists work with thousands of children in schools and after-school programs throughout the County, as well as at our Center in West Palm Beach, Florida. A majority of the students we work with are considered “at risk” of educational failure. The arts-based programs we provide are a very powerful way to improve these students’ chances of success; both academically and personally. CCE also works with advanced students who benefit from the opportunity to delve deeply into subjects through the arts and develop their creative thinking and problem solving skills. At our Center, in the Northwood Village section of West Palm Beach,we provide arts instruction for children and adults, we host art shows in our Gallery and serve as a base for many community activities. It’s also home to our administrative offices.  For more information: www.cceflorida.org

 

 

About Faith’s Place Center For Arts & Education:

For the last 2 years we have partnered with a thriving music program in Pleasant City call Faith’s Place Center For Arts & Education. Faith’s Place is an organization that provides educational services to the community. We offer pre-shcool (VPK), homework assistance, FCAT tutorials and after school arts enrichment programs. We also provide S.T.E.A.M. (science. technology, engineering, arts and mathematics) lessons through Prime Time.  CONTINUUM WPB Arts Art Fair hosts a VIP Black Tie & Sneaker Fundraiser during our opening, where we auction hand-painted sneakers by our local artists. Proceeds for the sale of the shoes will go to the the charity. Admission into the event that night is a brand new pair of sneakers.

Rolando Chang Barrero, was born in Coconut Grove, FL and currently resides in West Palm Beach, FL.  After receiving a BFA School of the Art Institute of Chicago, Rolando became an artist and art activist. Pulling together artists from various media and spectrums of life, his own artwork often took a back seat. His famous Art Walks established the Boynton Beach Arts District as the place to be seen.  He assures The Rickie Report that those will continue on a monthly basis, even as he puts his energies into this new gallery in Lake Worth.  His studio remains at 410 West Industrial Ave., Boynton Beach, FL.  In addition, he and Craig McInnis are organizing Art Synergy/Art Palm Beach ART WEEK for January, 2015.

Photography With a Different Point of View

S. Aaron Hopkins stopped at the Art Synergy booth during Art Palm Beach asking how to become more involved in the local art scene, as he was new to the area.  He had come to the right place!  In this article, The Rickie Report shares his good news of being accepted into a juried photography exhibit.  He is an accomplished photographer whose work has been described as “gritty, vivid and humanistic. We urge you to stop by the “World Through the Lens” at A Unique Art Gallery  May 14 – June 6th to see Mr. Hopkins’ work!

"Reading" by S.A.Hopkins

“Reading” by S.A.Hopkins

 Aaron tells The Rickie Report, “I can’t remember if there was a moment when I decided to become a photographer. I’ve been shooting since I had my first camera, a simple Kodak Instamatic. In fact, through the years, photography has been the one constant in my life.”
"Aaronnoire" by S.A. Hopkins

“Aaronnoire” by S.A. Hopkins

He goes on to share, ” I’ve spent nearly four decades walking around with my camera, taking pictures — or ‘making pictures’ as Ansel Adams once said.  Many of my photographer friends refer to my work as ‘vivid, humanistic, gritty or sublime’. I will let you be the judge.”
"Lincoln Road" by S.A.Hopkins

“Lincoln Road” by S.A.Hopkins

Some of Aaron’s favorite work includes photos he made in downtown Miami and South Beach many years ago – before the glitz and glamour.  He is fascinated by the contrast between then and now.  He says, “As a published cartoonist and illustrator, I also look for more amusing juxtapositions, especially in my street photography.”
"Window Face" by S.A. Hopkins

“Window Face” by S.A. Hopkins

“What I hope my photography captures a moment of visual poetry.  Sometimes it is a bit of irony, other times it is simply a face that catches my interest.  I shoot with intention, but I’m often pleased with the accidental or unexpected that many arise. In the end, it is my hope that these photographs will make you think, feel ….and at least put your cell phone down for a few minutes.”
"Old Man and Mannequin" by S.A.Hopkins

“Old Man and Mannequin” by S.A.Hopkins

Marianne V. is an avid follower of Aaron’s work.  She states, ”  It’s a rare occasion that you come across a photographer that really makes a difference.  I’d like you to look at the work of such a photographer, S.A. Hopkins.  I came across his work on one of the photo sharing sites and I’ve been following  his work for quite some time now. I’ve seen the impact his images have on his audience.  So what makes this photographer so unique? He doesn’t just register the world around him. He photographs with engagement, a close personal connection to his subjects, whether it’s on the streets or more personal subjects and with a passion and a keen and unique eye that makes his oeuvre so compelling… his work is subtle, humorous or gritty at times, but always has the power to evoke emotions to the viewer.”
 
 
Mr. Hopkins’ book “Faces and Places” is in the “Staff Picks” section of the Blurb Bookstore and can be found here:
 
 Blurb’s review:
“It’s hard to choose just one image from S.A. Hopkins’s collection “Faces and Places,” but this one is a real standout for us [photo of the man with hat, shown in this article]. From analog street photography to digital landscapes, the range in this book is fascinating. Though it covers 40 years, there’s a remarkable consistency to the work, but also a sense of personal innovation and exploration. Congrats on a great book!”
 

For comments, general inquiries, or on publishing / purchasing his work please contact Mr. Hopkins at: photesthesia@comcast.net or 804-901-1909  or visit photesthesia.com
