This exhibit was sponsored by the Utah Arts Council. Some of the concepts had their genesis some years ago when my son, Stewart, and I began experimenting with digital cameras. Our photographs turned in different directions than the traditional photography we had both experienced in the past and a special kind of Impressionistic style emerged which was a deliberate departure from photographic realism.  Only 6 of the photographs in this exhibit were created with traditional film and the help of software manipulation. The rest of the photographs were created with digital cameras using camera adjustments and "digital darkroom" color and contrast refinements. 

A Catalyst Magazine review said, "The exhibit, PHOTOGRAPHIC IMPRESSIONISM, is a deliberate search for techniques to produce spontaneous impressionistic images to emphasize the emotions with an inner sensibility rather than visual reality. This diverse representation of style and technique embraces the central idea of Impressionism."
