It all began with a conversation among three of us: my best and closest friend Gary Watson, Steve Kaiser, and I—spurred along by a certain volume of beer and scotch–conspired to inspire the creation of the Richard Dischler Photo Workshops (RDPW).

Sadly, Gary passed away from a sudden heart attack, and Steve suffered a severe stroke.

During his life, Gary had initiated a project of abstracting shapes. Particularly human shapes. Specifically female shapes. He allowed mere suggestions of the female human form to saturate his photographic vision. He could see a woman’s shape in a sidewalk curb, on the edge of a building, or a glass of scotch—reminiscent of Edward Weston’s series of green peppers as human metaphors.

All workshop members were invited to enter the first juried RDPW contest with their interpretations of human metaphors inspired by seascapes, landscapes, urbanscapes, cityscapes, or whateverscapes. No actual human images are permitted.

This HumanScapes exhibit is the result of this friendship, memory, journey. Enjoy!

The exhibit is on display at Keeble & Shuchat Photography Select Gallery from August 6 to October 14, 2015. An open house/reception will be held on August 15 from 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm. Everyone is invited to attend.
