Ceres Gallery was pleased to announce A Moment in Time: Photographs by Jane Stevens.
Stevens' black and white photographs capture the magical and spiritual quality a camera can record. These photographs capture the essence and spirit of a place. Using this light sensitive medium, the artist captures a moment in time and the illusive quality of light.
The photographs document approaching storms using infrared film. Storms can bring sudden and transforming experiences to the people who experience them. There is a very energetic and overwhelming energy that precedes a storm. These photographs are metaphors for personal struggles that people experience in their lives.
