Photographer John Olsen will be at Penn Cove Gallery from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sunday, Sept. 18, with his cameras and lots of discussion about his work and methods.
Before moving to the Northwest, John photographed widely in Asia, Europe and Mexico, as well as in his long-term home state of New Mexico. He works in all camera formats, but favors infrared and high-speed B&W films for interpretive images. His current photographic work is nearly all black and white, printed in his own darkroom. His new work, found in his “nautical” and “waterfall” collections, reflects the unique Northwest environment,. His “Industrial Glamour” collection reflects his admiration for people who build things that are both functional and graceful.
