“The juried photograph exhibition, Reflections Thru the Lens, at Wayne Arts Center ends on June 30th. I was able to sneak in at the last minute, to scope out the wide range of landscape photography. While I enjoy the rolling hills of the mid-Atlantic region, or large panoramas illustrating the stark contrast of a verdant field and a glowing, fiery sunset, I was most struck by a piece by Laura Ducceschi. “The Pier” features a placid beach scape encompassing the seaglass and sand palette that comes with the territory. However, the traditionally horizontal composition is interrupted abruptly by a backlit dilapidated pier. The structure, having been separated into three different sections due to erosion, seemingly crawls out of the sand and starts marching towards the water like a trio of Dali-esque stilt animals.
The exhibition was juried by John J. Carlano, Independent Commercial Photographer and Adjunct Associate at the University of the Arts.”
