DULUTH, Ga. — “To Feel the Clouds,” a curated photographic art exhibition of selected works by acclaimed Georgia photographer John Slemp, will be on dispaly through June 28 at the Georgia gallery of the Hudgens Center for the Arts.
The exhibition features 25 select photos of aircraft and the medium they fly in – clouds – in a free-floating display.
“It occurred to me that by showing both clouds, and aircraft, in the same exhibition, it would help to blend the two in the mind of the viewer…especially since they are so intertwined,” says John.
Most of the images were created with a Canon 5D MarkII camera, Canon lenses, and processed using Adobe Photoshop Lightroom software. They are printed on Kodak Endura paper, an archival paper that brilliantly displays the wide-ranging color palette of the images.
An Atlanta photographer for 20 years, John’s work focuses on the science, technology and art of aviation. His work has been exhibited in museums, private collections, corporate offices, and hotels throughout the country. Last year, 17 photographs were featured at the Smithsonian-affiliated Tellus Science Museum in Cartersville, Georgia, and most recently in an exhibition at the Colquitt County Arts Center in Moultrie, Georgia.
