November 9-December 11, 2015
Opening Reception on Thursday, November 12, 6-8pm, Joseph Gazzuolo Fine Arts Gallery

Artist Statement:
"We live in a time when great value is placed on the high speed ease of access to information.  Exposure to a plethora of words, sounds, and images, coupled with an expectation of our immediate availability to respond, has become the norm. Press Pause, is a collection of photographs made while seeking moments of respite from the frenzied pace of our connected world."
