I found I could say things with color and shapes that I couldn't say any other way--things I had no words for.

Visit Pages in August and September when we host

Land and Sea
Images from Here and Abroad

by John Sfondilias.

August 17th thru September 30th, 2003

Pages For All Ages Books, Music, Cafe & DVDs is proud to present this extensive collection of photographs by artist John Sfondilias.

Meet photographer John Sfondilias at a reception for the artist at our store in Savoy,
Sunday August 31st,
from 3pm.

John Sfondilias grew up in Oak Park, IL and moved to Champaign-Urbana in 1970. His "real job" is in instructional technology. He has a Ph.D. in Instructional Design and Computer Based Education from the University of Illinois. His past life includes jobs as varied as teaching sixth grade English in Mahomet and systems engineering at IBM...which is the connection to his present photography. Even though John acquired his first SLR camera more than 20 years ago, it wasn't until new technology gave rise to the digital camera that John's photography really took off. In the last 15 months, or so, John estimates that he has taken over 3000 photographs with his digital cameras.

This exhibit highlights some of his digital photography of the "land and sea." The photographs were taken with both two and five megapixel digital cameras and were printed with an Epson inkjet printer using Heavyweight Matte paper with DuraBright inks.

"In taking photographs, I try to create a window of interpretation that the viewer can appreciate. When this actually works, the viewer has a connection to the original subject matter, one that combines both the photographer's interpretation as well as the viewer's." --John Sfondilias
