“Arms, Legs and Hands”
Fascinating images captured by photographer Sherman Feller
March 3 – May 5 2014
Sherman is a retired chemist and self taught photographer. He became interested in photography in 1947 when he started to take photographs in Queens, New York, where he lived at that time. He has 56 years of photography experience using both medium format and 35mm cameras. He currently specializes in digital photography using a Canon digital camera and Canon printer, plus Paint Shop Pro, Photoshop Elements and other software for processing of images.
Feller states “When I became initiated to photography as a boy, my interests involved making images of family and friends. But now my interests have expanded especially to capturing candid images of people wherever I go. Most of my photos are made with existing ambient light since I generally avoid flash photography. I am hoping that this current exhibit will reveal interesting aspects of human behavior and activity, and allow the viewer to share my view of the world. These images have either been obtained from travels in Europe, local travel or from family members.”
Feller has participated in seven solo exhibits including the Westfield Library, Scotch Plains Library, Pearl Street Gallery and Gallery-on-the-Boulevard in Kenilworth Library. He has received several awards for his work including Third Prize in “Capture the Beauty of New Jersey” Contest and has had images published in the Scotch Plains/Fanwood Times, Suburban News and the New York Times website. He has also published over one hundred photos as a contract photographer for Patch.com. He acts a photographer for Fanwood’s Communications Committee and has been an active member of the Unique Vision Workshop for fourteen years. He has contributed more than thirty photos to their annual exhibit at the Watchung Arts Center.
