Apr 30, 2018

Art Licensing artist, Anthony Paladino, was recently featured in the Image City Photography Gallery exhibit, ‘Through the Student Lens 2018’, where his photo was chosen as one of “Peter’s Picks”.

Anthony’s photo, titled ‘Light and Water on Colorful Sandstones’, was selected for the exhibit after winning an award in one of the monthly competitions established by Camera Rochester, a photography group in the greater Rochester, NY area.

The exhibit’s main attraction was a selection of photographs from local high school students, representing 18 different schools in the Rochester area. Also featured were works from Wilson Foundation Academy’s Studio 678, The Rochester Area Nature Photography Meetup Group and other members of the Camera Rochester group.

Peter Marr has served as a judge, in both local and International photographic competitions, for the past 20 years and is a former President of the Kodak Camera Club, as well as a past Chairman of numerous Kodak Camera Club organizations. His photography has won him numerous awards throughout Kodak and in International Salons, including 5 George Eastman Medals, which is the top honor awarded to the most outstanding picture in the Annual Kodak International Salon.

Here is what Peter had to say about Anthony’s photograph: This lyrical waterscape, superbly seen and artistically captured by the author, is an impressive example of an image that is both timeless and magical. From the title, one knows that the photograph is about the playful interaction of light and water over colorful sandstones, which could be interpreted as the enchantment of moving water with the vitality of inert rocks. For myself, I am fascinated by the rhythmic interplays of colors in the water, which range from deep blues which gently merge into lighter shades of aqua blues and turquoise. Below the surface, the orange and yellow-gold hues could easily be imagined as from goldfish gently swimming over the sandstone rocks. Every viewer should take the time to look beyond the quiet beauty of this memorable print, relax the mind and try an emotional response, which could be a reflection of their own dreams. My own visual commentary is twofold. Firstly, it is easy to imagine that one is looking at an impressionism era painting, and secondly, the gentle flow of the water is musically reminiscent of a quiet passage from Claude Debussy’s La Mer. Photographically, Anthony has captured this image creatively, particularly by using a shutter speed that is exactly right in order to capture the profound serenity and emotional impact of this image.
