THE ESSENCE OF PHOTOGRAPHY with Russell Levine

For all levels, Wednesday 7:00 p.m. – 9:30 p.m. This class will revitalize your photography practice by exploring your relationship to your subject, your camera, and yourself. Through photo exercises, assignments, and field trips, we will learn to deepen our visual awareness while clarifying our approach, so that image making becomes both more personal and meaningful. This class will provide a unique opportunity to rethink our expectations of what it means to ‘see’. We will work on simplicity and making more powerful photographs, supporting the notion that a photograph is not ‘taken’ but made. Attention will be paid to lighting, composition, depth-of-field and exposure issues, but more importantly, you will practice using this information to make more powerful and meaningful images. Bring a sense of commitment (and sense of humor) and curiosity to class, as well as a few examples of recent work to the first session.

We will experiment with varied materials such as oil pastel, charcoal, graphite, ink and paint sticks.

Pen & Ink Drawing by Murray Kronick

Pen & ink artist Murray Kronick says “When most people travel and see something interesting or captivating, the first thing they whip out is their camera or i-Phone. For me, it is my sketch book”. Murray’s wife, Sylvia says “you may not want to travel with Murray. When he says ‘give me a few minutes’, beware, it is best to expect you will be there for a few hours.”

For the past two decades, Murray & Sylvia have devoted two to three months a year traveling on volunteer missions to third world countries. Many of their trips are sponsored by The American Jewish World Service. ajws.org. These assignments have afforded them an opportunity to give back, while immersing themselves in Africa, India, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, Burma (now Myanmar), Thailand, Cambodia and Indonesia…yet, in addition to returning stateside with a feeling of accomplishment, memories and photos, they return with beautiful pen and ink art.

 

 

 

Although “Tzedakah” ( helping others) is their driving force, they ensure that they build in free days, or pre or post-service travel time to see sights and experience the people, unique to every country on the globe. During these days, Murray captures spectacular scenery with his pen, while Sylvia relishes the moments, exploring and taking in what the surroundings offer.

On Nov. 16, 2015 at 2 p.m., Murray will present a talk and slide show, amplifying the satisfaction he and Sylvia have achieved in ‘giving back’. He will provide an overview of the work they do on their missions, and how he incorporates and extends these experiences by capturing art subjects, creating a medium that would not exist if there wasn’t a love for tzedakah, travel and art.
