Art Reception - The Light You Cannot See: Infrared Photography by Betsey Henkels - Free Admission

Saturday, October 26, 2019

Opening Reception with the Artist

Exhibit runs October 25, 2019 - 
February 2, 2020

Betsey Henkels uses the camera to explore the world in two ways, first by noticing and appreciating objects that she might otherwise overlook, and second, by transforming ordinary scenes into prints that are compelling and unexpected.

Henkels spent many hours in the Arboretum, photographing tree canopies, bark, and above ground roots in infrared. Infrared is magical and mysterious. The photographer shoots images without knowing exactly what will show up in the print. Looking through the viewfinder of an infrared camera, only the light that's visible to the eye is seen - not the near infrared light that the camera records. Strange colors are introduced, and a different fresh and surprising world of Arnold Arboretum trees is opened up, even to those of us who know and love them.

Free, public invited.
