Through my new art photography I capture elements that express their traditions.
New York, NY (PRWEB) May 30, 2013
Currently, Photographer Ellen Fisch is preparing for an August exhibition of her new photography art form that she developed using pencil, charcoal, pastel and 24K gold to enhance black and white and sepia photographs. "Worship" is the theme of Fisch's upcoming show of a dozen or more photography artworks that focus on the Durell United Methodist Church and the Bethlehem Hebrew Congregation's houses of worship located in Bethlehem, New Hampshire. Turing her lens on the architecture of the church and synagogue, Fisch also photographed the religious objects that articulate each sect. The photography will be on display at the Colonial Theater in Bethlehem, New Hampshire throughout the month of August.
The Colonial Theater has catered to the arts in the North Country for a number of years and hosted art shows, theatrical productions, films, concerts and other art events. Located on Main Street in the heart of Bethlehem, the Colonial Theater will present Photographer Ellen Fisch's photographic essay "Worship" in its large front windows nicknamed Bethlehem's "Glass Gallery." "Exhibiting at the Colonial Theater is a delight and an honor for me," says Fisch who has spent much time in the area throughout the years. "The Durrell Church and the BHC are fixtures in the community that have strong followings and provide much to their congregants. The architecture and artifacts of these religious mainstays are beautiful and provide much history of the town of Bethlehem, NH."
Photographer Ellen Fisch has been a photographer for most of her life. She has devoted many years to creating architectural art photographs that evoke a sense of place and timelessness for others who are passionate about photography and architecture. Fisch has combined the two into stunning sepia and black and white photography which has been exhibited, published and collected in NYC and in many parts of the world. Furthermore, an ardent student of art history and culture, Ellen Fisch has always appreciated the artistic religious architecture and art that creates a sense of tradition and community.
"Throughout history, religion has fostered artistic ways for devoutness to be depicted," notes Photographer Ellen Fisch. "Cultural and religious beliefs have been translated into many art forms such as architecture, painting, sculpture, music and numerous other expressions of devotion. Through my new art photography I am honored to capture some of the elements of the church and the synagogue that express their traditions."
