The towers were originally built in 1804-1805 to defend 
against a Napoleonic invasion by sea.  Napoleon never 
came....  and the towers did in fact deter what seemed to be the inevitable. The Martell o Towers were built closely  together  so as  to  function as  signal  towers.  When standing at one 
you will surely see at least one other. In  Dublin you 
will see one to the left and one to the right. There are more 
in other countries too, but Ireland is the filter thro ugh 
which I chose to document the towers. -TO

Start the new year with a new vision! Learn the techniques you need to communicate with your camera and how to take strong, effective photographs in this beginner course.  Different cameras (digital and traditional) will be addressed, and several practical demonstrations will be given in the classroom. Technical considerations will share time with explorations of photographic aesthetics. The emphasis of this course is color photography, though black and white concerns will also be discussed. Students will need to have a camera with manual controls.

Testimonial from Gail Garinger, Linda's student: "Linda's class was terrific!  She taught us the basics, responded to any questions we had, and infused us with her passion for photography."

January 20, 2019 from   4 - 6 PM

The afternoon will begin at 4 PM with a n hour-long yoga class with internationally acclaimed yog a instructor  Patricia Walden . At 5 PM following the yoga class, photographer Francesco Mastalia will discuss the making of his book, his creative process and photographic technique used for YOGA The Secret of Life. He will share his illuminating journey and sign copies of his book. 

YOGA The Secret of Life is a photo-documentary about the spiritual and physical journey of yoga. Through photographs and text this fine art book explores the personal experiences of 108 of today's leading practitioners and how this  ancient practice has transformed their mind, body, and spirit.

The photographs for the project are taken on glass plates using the wet collodion process, a photographic technique dating back to the 1850's. With the use of a large format wooden camera and antique brass lens, glass plates are hand-coated to produce one-of-a-kind "ambrotype" images. The collodion process transports us to another place and time. When the light-sensitive chemicals absorb the sun's ultraviolet rays, we enter a mysterious world where art and alchemy embrace.
Francesco Mastalia has traveled the world photographing tribal, religious, spiritual, and indigenous people. He is the photographer and author of "DREADS", "ORGANIC Farmers & Chefs of the Hudson Valley" and "YOGA The Secret of Life."

...the camera was applied to extend my vision. It recorded 
what was going on when I was in deep sleep and 
visual sensation was closed. The camera lens was set up
 to focus on the surroundings such as ceilings, walls, and 
corners of my room. The shutter of camera would take
 pictures when I was not awake. When my perception 
was limited and cut off from the usual, the camera 
started to see, to reveal the world I never saw. -WHC

"Abstraction allows man to see with his mind what he cannot see physically with his eyes....Abstract art enables the artist to perceive beyond the tangible, to extract the infinite out of the finite. It is the emancipation of the mind. It is an exploration into unknown areas."
