Photography in Paradise

peeking from behind the sensor

Since the last lecture was such a big success OMA has decided to offer one more on Saturday Oct.16th at 2pm. Those who missed the first will now have a chance to see the show and listen to be babble about the show and the photographic processes used to make some of the more extreme images. Hope you can make it. If you want some of us are going to have lunch before the lecture at Ty’s Burger House on Mission Ave, in Oceanside. They have very good hamburgers and salads and the prices are very low for such great food. I will be there about 1pm. the Oceanside Museum of Art is two blocks from the restaurant on Pier Ave.

OMA announcement

Lee Peterson will talk again on Sat. Oct. 16th, 2010 at 2pm about his beautiful photography at Oceanside Museum of Art: Global Art, Urban Scenes of Oceanside and Life by the Sea around the Oceanside Pier.
Photographer Lee Peterson has a way of documenting his surroundings that is both natural and provocative and reveals the ambiguous reflection of his observing mind. Marvelous stories reside within the borders of his images. In contemplating these images the viewer is as much captured as is the photographic image. With his observant eye Peterson gives us first a reference point in identifying the object – or so we thought. Then takes us in for a closer look catching fleeting moments from our own experiences. Simple things…the beauty of a stone, a motion captured in time, memories reflecting our past. These moments are straightforward bits of time that articulate the everyday world we live in but are too busy to stop and appreciate. As Lee says, “The things that go unnoticed are often the things we need the most – reflections and emotions”. Dndiele Arnoud
