November 29th from 5 to 7pm, we will be joined by Photographer James O'Mara in conversation with Vicki Gabereau. The discussion will be followed by signings of O'Mara's latest publication Encounters, available for purchase at the event. His photographic art can be approached in as many ways as the poetry residing in it. Discussing his work, O?Mara says, “I try to approach every adventure in life as if it were a dance. I need that pulse, that rhythm.” In fact, in his pictures we can perceive not only the moment captured by the camera lens, but also a “before” and an “after.” He has the ability to grasp the dynamics of the scene, even in perfectly still subjects: the ephemeral moment, the instant in which a figure reveals his or her nature or events show new meanings.
