The Les Malamut Art Gallery will present the images of photographer Sherman Feller in an exhibit titled “Arms, Legs and Hands” from March 3 through May 5.
Sherman is a retired chemist and self taught photographer. He is married with three children and five grandchildren.
He has 56 years of photography experience using both medium format and 35mm cameras and in the processing of black & white and color negatives and prints, with associated dodging, burning, masking, filtration, hand coloring, solarization, bleaching, etc. He currently specializes in digital photography using a Canon digital camera and Canon printer, Paint Shop Pro, Photoshop Elements and other software for processing of images.
Feller states “When I became fascinated with 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 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-0n-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 more than 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.
