February 2 - February 27, 2018
During Talo’s late wife’s (Judith Feder) battle with cancer from year 2001 onwards to 2010, while taking care of home and children, he started to focus and be aware of each moment in the day which was very differently from the one he had as a busy New York City professional architect.
This daily awareness developed sensitivity to seasonal patterns and colors opened compositions; colors that we normally do not think of. Tapani Talo has continued the seasonal, daily study since – for 16 years – with different aspects and emphasis of nature and location all within Westchester, NY.
This show marks the 50th anniversary of Talo becoming a semi professional photographer, which started with his role as a Press Photographer in 1967 for newspapers about Rock and Roll in Helsinki, Finland.
The artist will host a reception on Saturday, February 10, from 2:00pm to 4:00pm in the Oresman Gallery. The reception is also free and everyone is welcome.
