Fascinating Photography: The Work of Gary Engle

Gary Engle has exhibited his work with Still Point Art Gallery numerous times. Most recently, he submitted several images from his Rocky River series. The exhibit is titled Earth Water Fire Air: Our World in Abstract, and Engle received the award for Best Portfolio. 

What is it about black and white photography? It removes the distraction of color. It makes the vast number of variations between black and white the most important thing. And the magic lies within and between those variations—how they are placed, the pattern they make, the soft or hard transitions between them. Perhaps nowhere is this more fascinating to observe than in the work of Gary Engle.
