Film, digital and paint featured

Two photographers with distinctly different approaches are currently being exhibited at The Old School House Arts Centre until March 15.

Rustry Joerin’s work reveals what he calls “Cultured Landscapes,” places that have been positively altered or created by human interaction with the land. His photographs were captured in public and private gardens locally and elsewhere in Canada.

His images are captured in “raw”  format for maximum post-exposure creative control, catalogued and processed in Lightroom software. Exhibited photographs are printed on high quality paper with pigment inks for longevity.

Joerin’s colour-rich digital photographs are contrasted to Paul Kyba’s black and white film photography. Taken over a two-week period in Paris in 2008, his images have captured les Parisiens, the people of Paris‚ rather than popular monuments, along with the people of Oaxaca street. The exhibition also includes portraits of his musical heroes. His images are not cropped or manipulated in any way and are printed on archival fiber-based photographic paper.

Kyba learned the art of street photography under the tutelage of two of America’s great documentary photographers: Mary Ellen Mark and Peter Turnley. He honed his darkroom skills through advanced study at Vancouver’s Focal Point School of Visual Arts and with the guidance of the American master printer, Bruce Barnbaum.

• Judi Pedder will be exhibiting her watercolour paintings at the same time at TOSH. With formal art training in England, her work now hangs in Johannesburg, Sydney, Australia, Chicago, Budapest, Calgary, Albuquerque and many United Kingdom, Ontario and B.C. cities. Pedder paints and teaches from her Comox gallery and studio. Her work in this exhibition comes from scenes witnessed while traveling in Canada and Europe, including flowers. Pedder has released a DVD entitled Preparing and Painting on Masa Paper.

All three artists are exhibiting at TOSH in Qualicum Beach until March 15. Visit www.theoldschoolhouse.org or call 250-752-6133 for more information.
