The fast pace of digital photography is being replaced by “A Space for Faith: Colonial Meeting Houses of New England,” a new exhibit on display through Thursday, Dec. 8, at MTSU’s Baldwin Photographic Gallery.
Photographer Paul Wainwright, who is based in Atkinson, N.H., works in a traditional manner with sheet film, a large-format camera and silver-gelatin printing in a wet darkroom.
His work has appeared in numerous juried competitions and solo exhibitions and is included in the permanent collections of both private and corporate collectors, including Fidelity Investments and Houston’s Museum of Fine Arts.
He is a mostly self-taught photographer whose images feature space and light, subtle details and an appreciation of history, as well a sense of quiet contemplation that comes from the slow, Zen-like pace of creating his images.
A Space for Faith: Colonial Meeting Houses of New England is his first book of photographs.
Baldwin Photographic Gallery is located in the McWherter Learning Resources Center, and its operating hours are Monday through Friday, 8 a.m.-4:30 p.m., and noon to 4 p.m. Saturday. The gallery is closed during University holidays.
All photo exhibitions are free and open to the public.
