Not long ago I heard a professor of creative writing (and a published author) say the craft of writing could be taught but the art of writing could not. I believe something similar could be said about photography and have long suspected this is one reason our Club concentrates so strongly on the techniques or craft of photography. It is both reassuring and inspiring then that some Club members venture so powerfully into the art of photography. Colin Vince is definitely
one of them.
For his showcase on March 8, 2018, Colin walked us through his journey from a Fine Arts degree at MacEwan University, to his multi-image art works depicting the sport of curling and onto his current interest in equine photography. Colin finds that combining images into a single work creates a more interesting result than straight solo images. That is certainly confirmed if the response to his image “Horse Ghost” is any measure. Surprisingly,
Horse Ghost, which was Colin’s contribution to
Exhibit 2017 at Jake’s Framing, was a combination
of only two images.
Also impressive was Colin’s more current work with horses; inspired by Tony Stromberg a world renowned equine photographer. It was the perfect incentive for the upcoming Club outing to Free Rein Ranch.
Colin’s work can be seen at his web site: www.itslikeart.ca or at https://500px.com/colin58 but to really appreciate the splendour of his art you might want to stop by Jasper Place Curling Club and soak it in first hand.
