India and Beyond.
Ron Veto & Louis Kravitz
ABOUT THE EXHIBIT
Louis Kravitz - 'My Images attempt to show our common humanity: the themes most people share as they move through their lives - the joys and fears of childhood, the love and pride of parents, the intensity of people working, playing, cooking, buying, selling and worshiping. And sometimes the courage they bring just to living'.
Ron Veto, soc.
For the past 35 years, My Nikons and I have traveled at ground level exploring the fascinating lands of India and Asia. Exotic worlds of faith and spirit that grounds a person and feeds the soul. For me, the perfect gift is to capture that karmic "eye to eye" connection. Sharing a powerful moment then parting forever, knowing everyone's lives have been changed, especially mine.Traveling off the beaten path means long horrible bus rides, limited cuisine and sometimes little sleep. But that’s where the fun begins and magical images are found. I don’t photograph misery and despair. That’s easy to find. I capture images of people and places that move me or make me smile. As photographers, we all try to capture a speck in time. Chasing rainbows is fun. After so many years in the making, I’m proud to display my unique images of our world, for your thought and enjoyment. This photo collection began in 1982 to current 2016. Aside from a couple of “Holga" or “Widelux” images, this collection has been photographed exclusively using prime 1982 Nikon lenses only.
