Sence of Place
By Bruce Janklow
Travel photography is a long and well-established segment within the photography world. Impressionist photography, while less popular, is a very accepted school of fine art photography. However, to my observation, they are not frequently combined.

My goal, which led to the “Sense of Place” project, is to go beyond documenting the physical reality of places as is done in traditional travel photography and introduce an impressionistic component that stimulates the viewer to have feelings and reactions, creating a powerful emotional reality.
I have been blessed and fortunate to be able to travel widely with my camera. Each new place generates different but strong emotions, feelings, and reactions within me. As I mix with the local people, walk their markets, meditate in their places of worship, marvel in their landscapes, and soak up their culture, I find that the more traditional approach of capturing images of these experiences leaves me hungering for something more personal and intimate.
So in “Sense Of Place” I have explored ways to communicate the texture, movement, noise, silence, beauty, and grit of these places that captures my own experiences each step of the way as I capture the images, develop them in my digital darkroom, and turn them into prints.
The Ignacio Ramírez Cultural Center “El Nigromante” (Bellas Artes) presents this exhibition “Sense ofPplace” which opens on Thursday, February 11 at 7pm, through April 2016.
