"Water" Photography Exhibit at Vermont PhotoPlace Gallery

People at Fountain, NYC, 2011 © Robert Forlini

My photograph, People at Fountain, NY, 2011, has been selected by juror Connie Imboden to appear in an exhibition entitled "Water" at Vermont PhotoPlace Gallery's Online Gallery. To quote from the juror's statement, "Water is a subject near and dear to me.  I have spent almost thirty years exploring the mesmerizing qualities of it – how it can distort, magnify, elongate and reflect ... I found myself attracted to the photographs that rely on a special way of seeing – of using the water to see in a new way, rather than finding a special subject or event and making a picture of it.  It is through the seeing and the exploration, that the image becomes unique and original and can transform an ordinary subject into something extraordinary". In addition, the picture will be published in an exhibition catalog which will be available through the gallery website.
