Opening Reception for “Memory” – A Photography Exhibit by Alex Madonik

June 10, 2018 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Join us for the opening reception of “Memory,” a photography exhibit by Kehilla member Alex Madonik.  Come meet the artist, shmooze, and enjoy refreshments. In the Fireside Room.

Alex writes:

I take photos to help me remember.  Every moment, every place, every person is somehow unique and transitory, so we construct memories that we can hold on to.  Our minds are full of images and “frames” to put them in, and we are good at constructing memories, most of which are false.  We imagine we heard and saw things that we never heard or saw, because we think they are “true.”

We like to say, “the camera doesn’t lie,” and that was at least somewhat true before the age of Photoshop.  All I can say is that the images you will see in my Kehilla exhibit are “true” because they correspond to original images or negatives.  But, they were selected because they are significant to me.  Perhaps their significance will ring true for you, perhaps not.  At any rate, you will be able to see the world through my eyes (and mind).  I hope to see you June 10th!
