View Finders features 83 unique and wonderful pictures
by 35 of Ketchikan's best photographers, including outstanding
photography students from Ketchikan High School and University
of Alaska Ketchikan Campus. The exhibit encompasses a variety
of subject matter, from Paulu Saari's detailed study of the tideline
at Mountain Point to Dr. Bruce Schwartz's color prints of Africa.
Many of the images are hauntingly beautiful; others are zany
and amusing. Every one demonstrates the impressive talent that
abounds in our town.
Jennifer Soderstrom and her mother, Donna Soderstrom, view photographs by Jennifer and her fellow UAS - Ketchikan students with the Museum's Program Coordinator, Frances Leach.
Pat Schmidt, Amanda Welsh, Hall Anderson, and David Jensen discuss Paulu Saari's 1951 photograph of Barney Way and Creek Street at the opening reception.
In conjunction with View Finders: Ketchikan Photographers, the museum department has scheduled an excellent series of films featuring famous photographers. The first film, Alfred Stieglitz: The Eloquent Eye, will be shown in the Tongass Historical Museum gallery on Sunday, March 14, at 2 PM. Admission is free.
