Each image is an expression of the photographer's personal vision, created without the constraints or direction found in commercial assignments and juried competitions.  The work, therefore, is diverse and unique to the photographer and accompanied by their narrative.

"Further Adventures with an iPhone Camera"
Ross Wagner

Lower Gallery

Sunday, October 5 – Sunday, October 26

Ross Wagner, Red Abstract

Ross Wagner is the founder and facilitator of the Unique Vision Photography Workshop which meets monthly at the Watchung Arts Center. He says of this exhibit:

A year ago, when I introduced iPhone images at my annual show at The Watchung Arts Center, visitors seemed transfixed by the technical quality of the images possible from this small pocket accessory.

The virtue of the iPhone camera, and yes, it is a phone and it is a camera, is accessibility. While an expensive digital SLR gathers dust, the iPhone is my constant companion, responsive to the slightest visual impulse.

So I am at it again in this year's exhibit, with an eye to the abstract, and to images I find while having breakfast on the patio, teasing the cat, or sipping a glass of Diet Coke while watching the 6:30 news.

SLR images will also be shown. Will you be able to discern which are iPhone and which are SLR?

Ross Wagner's exhibit will also include new images from a Unique Vision Workshop photographer, Sherman Feller.
