Contrast - An Exhibit of Photographic Work by Michael Frye on Display through July 15th

Contrast, an exhibit of photographic work by Michael Frye, is on display at The Ansel Adams Gallery in Yosemite National Park through July 15, 2008. An artist’s reception will be held on June 11th from 4:30 – 6:30 PM.

Michael Frye is a professional photographer specializing in landscapes and nature. While some photographers have a uniform, recognizable style, Michael is not one of them. To Michael, it seems limiting to only photograph the world in one way, so he has developed several distinct bodies of work. These include surreal nighttime images, delicate high-key work, and classic landscape photographs.

"Despite some obvious differences in style, the subject is always nature, and my main tool is light. Light is what allows me to create a mood, whether that mood is lyrical, playful, or mysterious. Light and subject also combine to create contrast within the image itself. This contrast can take many forms: light against dark, dark against light, warm colors against cool colors, even contrasting textures or subject matter. Sometimes the contrast is subtle, sometimes dramatic, but it’s always there. Contrast is what makes photography—and life—interesting."
