"Florescent" Photographic Exhibit by Pam Grafstein
Exhibit: August 16-October 4, 2015
Reception: Saturday, August 29 4-6pm
Investigating the natural world has always defined my character. Over the years, I grew to love any activities that brought me outdoors and into the woods. I learned to appreciate the environment and the creatures that live within it.
When I started my career as a middle school Life Science teacher some 18 years ago, I purchased my first "real" camera. I learned what I could from basic photography courses and photography books, and began my quest to capture the powerful imagery which Nature bestows.
My creative purpose is to effectively merge the worlds of Natural Science and Art, but in the absence of natural elements, I am impelled to be resourceful, creating interesting images using commonplace objects and playthings.
I reside in Congers, NY with my husband and two children. I credit my active membership in the Rockland Photography Club for the education, motivation and inspiration that has nurtured my growth as an artist.
