At Habonim: Aerial kite photography show
BARRINGTON – The Temple Habonim Art Gallery will showcase the aerial kite photography of Ivan Wolfson, MD, beginning on Sunday, March 3, with an opening reception scheduled from 1 to 3 p.m.
According to Dr. Wolfson, a small digital camera is attached via a few metal brackets to the line of his kite. “I choose the angle at which the camera sits and choose location, timing and conditions. The camera is programmed to take a photo usually between five and 10 seconds. The camera is set to rotate a few degrees every 10 seconds. 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 between 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. The temple is located at 165 New Meadow Rd. For more information, call 401-245-6536 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
