First Friday Photography Venues for 2015-10-02

Here’s the list of Lancaster City venues that I believe will be showing some photographs (or photo-inspired art) this First Friday, October 2nd:

Coe Gallery

5 – 9 pm
David Schrott: “Monocropping, Small Farm Organics & Superweeds: A Brief Overview of Modern American Agriculture”
David graduated from Drexel University in 2004 with a Bachelor’s of Science in Photography. Since then he has shot for a variety of clients across the Northeast and Midwest. He shoots 6×6 film on a Hasselblad and his current focus is on modern agriculture and how it affects consumers, their health and the environment.

Mio Studio
154 North Prince Street
5 – 9 pm
Stephanie Millner was born to be an artist – as the daughter of internationally known illustrator Joe Kohl, art has been an ever-present part of her life. With the constant encouragement of both of her parents, she pursued photography from a very early age, never wavering in her desire to make it her career. The travel photography exhibited is part of Stephanie’s personal collection. Each location was selected based on its dramatic lighting,beautiful monochromatic texture, and otherwise bold surreal color. As Stephanie’s photography work takes her across the globe, she continues to add new pieces to this collection that exemplify theatrical texture and chiaroscuro.
