Staff Report

Photographers George Rose and Paul Roark will be joined by Christopher LT Brown for a panel discussion on March 23.

Three local photographers will gather at Elverhøj Museum of History & Art at 4 p.m. Saturday, March 23, for a panel discussion about approaches to black-and-white photography. The range of possibilities it offers will be discussed, from images inspired by the pioneers of photography to fresh interpretations that digital techniques allow.

“Creating black-and-white photography is very different from creating color photography,” notes fine art photographer Paul Roark. “An awareness of the differences is needed in order to be able to create good black-and-white photography, where the input of the artist is often more important than the subject.” 

Roark’s photographs are on display in the current Elverhoj exhibition, “Between Light & Dark,” through April 14

For the discussion, Roark will be joined by photographers George Rose and Christopher LT Brown. 

The event is free and the public is invited to join in the discussion. A social hour will follow with light refreshments served.

The Elverhøj Museum of History and Art at 1624 Elverhoy Way in Solvang is open from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Wednesday through Sunday. There is no charge for admission, but a $5 donation is requested.
