World renowned photographer Hunt Harris has been called “a poet with a camera, offering a highly personal yet stylized view of the world.” Gallery C is pleased to exhibit his newest prose, the infrared photographs of his Dubuque – A Jewel on the Mississippi River series.
This new series is focused on Dubuque’s architectural highlights with a camera converted to see the near infrared portion of the light spectrum. This is made up of light waves too long for the visible eye to see but short enough that most digital sensors can capture them. The infrared black and white process turns foliage white, blue skies and water dark and makes architecture stand out from the summer landscape. It gives a different look to otherwise familiar places, one that Hunt hopes the viewers of this exhibit will enjoy.
Dubuque: A Jewel on the Mississippi, hosted by Gallery C, is pleased to have the artists in attendance at the Opening Reception, Friday, September 5, 6-9pm at Gallery C. The show will run through September 28, 2014. All are invited and welcome to attend this exhibition, and to participate in the expanding arts scene in the Millwork District. There is no charge and refreshments will be served.
Hunt and his wife live in Moline, IL, the parents of two children and four randdaughters. Recently retired, during his career Hunt ran several companies including Star Forms and Isabel Bloom. He is an active volunteer having chaired the boards of many non-profit organizations in the Quad Cities. As a philanthropist he is president of two private foundations funding programs primarily in the Quad Cities area.
