A new exhibit featuring photographs in Italy by two Birmingham photographers will kick off Saturday, September 2, in the Fourth Floor Gallery of the Central Library. A Romantic Journey depicts photographs that Bre Conley Saxon of Say Bre Photography and Rachel McElroy of Rachel McElroy Imagery captured during a trip to Italy.
A description of the exhibit:
A Romantic Journey by Bre Conley Saxon and Rachel McElroy
It seems an impossible task to write one statement for two artists. While we share a subject—the Italian landscape—our eyes, emotions, motivations, experiences, and even our equipment differed. For Bre, her collection of photographs encapsulates A Romantic Journey. She experienced Italy with her husband and best friends, while also photographing Tuscan weddings. Her images reflect the Italian fairytale—beautiful brides, sparkling wines, and rainbows over golden landscapes.
For me, however, I embarked on my Italian adventure after facing heartbreak. Viewing Italy through my lens transported me from the pain. Photographing felt like meditation—it was incredible, and seemed to heal me. The magical Light, the vibrant city-life, new friends, the powerful Dolomites, the poppy fields, the wine, the best pasta ever… In a way, I guess, I also experienced A Romantic Journey.
We present this collection to show the Love we captured.
