Aerial Kite Photos to Go on Display
A reception at the Temple Habonim art gallery on Sunday afternoon opens a show of aerial kite photography created by Dr. Ivan Wolfson.
A show of unusual aerial kite photography starts Sunday, March 3, at the Temple Habonim art gallery in Barrington.
The show will feature the work of Dr. Ivan Wolfson. It opens with a reception from 1 to 3 pm at the temple at 165 New Meadow Road.
Wolfson attaches a small digital camera with a few metal brackets to the line of a kite to create his photographs.
“I choose the angle at which the camera sits and choose location, timing and conditions,” he said. “The camera is programmed to take a photo usually between five and 10 seconds.”
The camera also is set to rotate a few degrees every 10 seconds, Wolfson said.
“The randomness makes the process more interesting for me and gives the photographs, especially the ones with people, a candid feel,” he said.
The photographs are taken from 50 and 300 feet high.
“These heights offer fantastic perspectives that are not often seen,” he said. “Similar to macro-photography, the images produced may be disorienting due to the novel perspective, yet often are very beautiful. I love when someone sees one of these photographs out of context, and cannot be sure what it is.”
The photography exhibit will continue through May 2.
