Current News at SUNY Orange http://www.sunyorange.edu/wea/grapevine/campus Current News for Tuesday, May 5, 2015 Tue, 05 May 2015 04:00:00 +0000 Light & Life ~ Light & Form - photographs by George Saines A native of Kane, Pa., George Saines, PhD, has lived in Middletown for many years. A retrospective of his works in black and white photography will be on exhibit in Orange Hall Gallery Loft May 11 through June 18. Entitled "Light & Life ~ Light & Form," the exhibit demonstrates the magnificence of the ordinary and commonplace through his keen eyes for creativity.

Saines’ photographs were taken with a Mamiyaflex C220 twin lens reflex 120 roll-film camera. The works demonstrate his skills as he developed and printed them all in his darkroom using conventional methods without digital enhancement.

Viewers will enjoy identifying everyday local scenes and objects which are spotlighted through the 45 photographs in the exhibit. Though the opportunities may be by chance during his daily walks, Saines creates his photographs through the angles from which he takes each shot always keeping in mind an emphasis on light and composition. “These images attempt to engage both the eye and the intellect,” explains Saines.

Saines started taking pictures when he bought his Kodak Brownie. He always held on to his interest in photography. Then, as a young man, he advanced from a serious amateur to a professional combat photographer when he served in the Korean War. Following the war, Saines attended American University on the G.I. Bill, and Penn State on a fellowship receiving B.S. and Ph.D. degrees, respectively, in organic chemistry. A long and fruitful career at Texaco, Inc., as a resource chemist followed, during which he continued pursuing his photographic interests. In retirement, he has focused his lenses to catch contrasts in season and subjects.

Come, meet, and converse with Dr. Saines on Sunday, May 17 from 1 to 4 p.m. at the reception for the show. The exhibit and reception are free and open to the public.  Gallery hours are Monday through Thursday ~ 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Friday ~ 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. through May. In June, the college is closed on Fridays.
