The Art of Seeing Photography Exhibit

By Ben Simbole

San Miguel De Allende welcomes Ben Simbole, a recent arrival from Fort Lauderdale, Florida, for his first international photography opening. His philosophy: To get the shot, one must see the shot. It is therefore “The Art of Seeing” that one must develop in order to produce dynamic fine art photography. Ben is one of the few artists who are able to easily put into words the impact that an image has, but after you read his story, be sure to mark your calendar to see the images themselves on Thursday, August 3.

Photography Exhibit
“The Art of Seeing”
By Ben Simbole
Thu, Aug 3, 4–8pm
San Francisco 18 (upstairs), Centro

Ben is 65 years old and has been a hobbyist photographer since the halcyon days of Kodak film. He later studied at the Delray Center for the Arts in Florida. Light, line, shadow, and color are sought through his camera lens. His array of targets is wide and varied.

In a recent interview, Ben shared the following: “We all rush through our world and through life, looking but not seeing. Sunlight sparkles as diamonds on water; dewdrops caress delicate flowers; farm stock graze in verdant valleys; and clouds rise as noble knights to towering heights. All of these sights rush into view every day, everywhere, and fade without a memory. Caught up in the humdrum of life, most people fail to stop, to look, to see, and feel the beauty that God has given us. It is my aim to reconnect everyone to the simple beauty of life. What I shoot is what I see, and beauty is everywhere. I urge everyone to stop a moment, look 360 degrees, and you will see beauty where you stand, right now and at this very moment.”

Ben was born and raised in central New York State, had a successful law practice in Arlington, Virginia, and retired to Fort Lauderdale, Florida. He recently purchased a home here in San Miguel de Allende, where he now resides full time.

Locales for his images range from Washington DC and Arlington, Virginia, to Florida, Italy, France, and now San Miguel De Allende.

Fine art photography is now his passion. Post-processing makes each image a unique work of art, and this is his ultimate goal. He enjoys travel and he brings travel images to life in framed works of art.

Don’t miss this exhibit, 4—8pm at Studio Antonelli, 18 San Francisco, upstairs, Centro SMA. Email for inquiries.
