“Presence”, an exhibit of Black & White photography by Dennis Dilmaghani will be on display at the Scarsdale Library from January 27th thru the end of February. The exhibit features landscapes and cityscapes spanning a range of many years and many places.
The core of Dilmaghani’s art is in capturing the grace and beauty of the natural or man-made world with his camera. He believes every place has a unique “spirit” or “presence”. As part of capturing an image, he attempts to honor that feeling. In the developing and printing process, he strives to present his photographic interpretation in a well crafted printed image.
Black & White imagery is Dilmaghani’s favorite. In his words, “B&W provides an abstraction of subject without a veneer of color which may distract from design, form and texture.” He further comments, “Color photographs are driven primarily by the appearance of color. Black & White images are driven by light – the element most directly emphasizing or influencing the varying shades of gray of the subject matter’s design, form and texture.”
Dilmaghani participated in Adams’s Carmel workshop and was invited to join in a portfolio of 14 outstanding participants and assistants selected from many of Ansel Adams’s workshops.. Dilmaghani studied further with other accomplished photographers, establishing his own style using a traditional style large format view camera. His photographs are in corporate and private collections as well as the Center for Photographic Arts in Tucson, AZ
