This exhibition celebrates Florida’s historical landscape with a series of 21 black and white photographs by Kevin Boldenow, featuring images of Florida’s off-the-beaten scenery.
"Ever since I picked up my parents' Brownie camera, I have been passionate about photography. Since then, I have built a career as a professional photographer specializing in 35mm, medium format, and digital landscapes with figurative imagery. In addition to living in Michigan, I have lived in 5 states, including Texas, New Jersey, and Virginia, before moving to Florida in 1996. Inspired by the density and drama of the landscape, I began to specialize primarily in black & white, as well as black & white infrared film, as a way to capture the myriad textures and details found in the overwhelmingly verdant landscape. Although color will always be a part of my portfolio, I believe that black & white dramatically reveals the combination of light, heat, and shadows found in the already mystical landscape. I seek to instill the sense of awe and serenity we feel when we truly experience the beauty of nature. So often, we allow little distractions to upset our balance. Nature helps to retain that balance."
