Images by ML Price Photographer: Michael L. Price always loved photography even as a child with his first Instamatic. He was able to purchase his initial Minolta 35 mm SLR in 1982. At this stage Michael uses various Nikon digital SLRs. He discovered his true love for nature photography when vacationing in Chincoteague, Virginia, 25 years ago. He also has found that images of landscape and historical places inspire him to want to duplicate what he sees, especially at that “golden hour”. Michael is excited to share his images with you and hopes you thoroughly enjoy them as much as he did shooting them.

Steeple View Lofts
118 North Water Street
5 – 9 PM
Steeple View Lofts is pleased to feature Emilie Ash’s photographs during Lancaster’s October First Friday. Emilie Ash received her first disposable camera at age 5 and has been snapping photographs ever since. She placed second in Pennsylvania during 2010 Skills USA Competition and attended Art Institute of Pittsburgh before graduating from Antonelli Institute of Photography and Graphic Design in 2014. Her subject matter ranges from wild animals to unique still life! We hope you can join us in celebration of Emilie’s beautiful photography!

Community Room on King
106 West King Street
6 – 9 PM
Join us on Friday September 5 at the Community Room on King from 6-9 PM for Un’Italia Intima (An Intimate Italy), a photo exhibit from the lens of Emily Meneghin, a senior Italian-Theatre Major at Franklin & Marshall College, and New Yorker. Emily says this about the show, “I spent the last four months of 2013 living in Italy. Visiting family or simply traveling, I photographed different cities. Looking through my reel from my time, I notice that each space had a different flavor. Each venue had its own language and identity written into its pavements, or couches. The point of this show was not to depict monuments under a spotlight, but rather to create an intimate relationship with the spaces. A listening ear can discover the unexpected and blossom meaningfully.” So join us for an intimate look at Italy, some great coffee and snacks and a chance to engage the arts & community.
