For his contributions to Still Point Art Gallery's current exhibition, Spirit of Place-Spirit of Home, photographer Ron Testa was named an Artist of Distinction. His images indeed reveal the spirit of the places he photographs--places that are unique, extraordinary, and genuine. His images also reveal something of Testa's spirit--someone who is unique, extraordinary, and genuine. After all, the great photographer Minor White once said, "All photographs are self-portraits."
