Photographs on view April 2nd through April 28th.

WHAT I SEE is a collection of photographs by Jeff Dykes featuring both
color and black-and-white archival prints. Jeff identifies himself as
an image maker. He looks at the world in great detail, loves light and
moods, shoots from unique perspectives, and captures moments one might
otherwise miss. His love of nature is evident in the beauty he
portrays.

Jeff draws the viewer into his photographs with awesome images that
sometimes leave the viewer wondering what we are observing. One
example is Looking up, are we looking at clouds or waves or a
reflection of clouds on water? Perhaps it does not really matter which
way is up (or down) when the intensity of the image is so powerful it
makes us pause to ponder in the first place.

Jeff’s eye has been honed with keen observational skills. He started
his training in photography at Salem State College and credits his
talent for pinhole photography to Frank Quimby. For several years,
Jeff was a staff photographer at the Peabody Essex Museum. His studio
work focuses on capturing the patina of age and tiny details while
honoring the integrity object. Whatever the subject, Jeff is certain
to create an indelible image.
