Landscape Through a Lens: Two Visions

When: Sept. 22 through Oct. 27; reception for the artists is 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. on Sept. 22

Where: White Lotus Gallery, 767 E. Eighth Ave., Eugene

Description: PhotoZone members Gary Tepfer and Charles Search are two traditional film photographers who explore and interpret the landscape. Tepfer uses color film utilizing cibachrome prints to express his vision. Search pairs black and white film with the silver print as his medium for perception. Both use a deliberative approach employing primarily medium format cameras attached to a tripod. This method allows both photographers to apprehend and inhabit the environment in which they place themselves. However, through the different mediums, the outcomes provide distinct and personal visions. The result provides an interesting contrast on how the choice of medium alters the landscape we see.

Gallery hours: 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday
