In mid-2009, Richard Dischler launched his first Previsualization Workshop at Keeble & Shuchat Photography. Dischler aimed to help budding photographers find and hone their inner photographic vision. Since that time, many of the workshop’s photographers have been published, exhibited in galleries and museums, and captured numerous prizes – both national and international.

This exhibit includes images taken by a few of the earliest members of the Dischler workshops whose abilities have matured over the years. Their work validates the unique creative process Dischler has developed and nurtured since the launch of the workshops six year ago.

The exhibit is on display in the Keeble & Shuchat Main Gallery, June 11 through July 8, 2015.

Two Magical Places, Two Cultures, Two Photographers Exhibit

Two Magical Places

Magical places conjure both physical locations as well as spiritual spaces. So they can be exterior and interior journeys. They offer a chance to connect with a unique place, diverse people, unusual perspectives, and different ways of going about life.

These images offer a journey into an interior landscape, made possible by our effort in navigating distant lands, meeting new peoples, enjoying exotic foods, and discovering our similarities while celebrating our differences.

On display are images from Bali, Indonesia & Oaxaca, Mexico.

We hope that these images will inspire and invite you to embark on a personal journey of exploration into your own soul and to those mystical places that resonate in your own heart.

Go discover!

Please join photographers Charles Mujie and Michael Palma on June 20th from 1 to 4pm.

The exhibit will be on display from June 5 to August 4, 2015 at Keeble & Shuchat Photography, 290 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA.
