LOS ANGELES, Calif., Jan. 4, 2013 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- Calumet is proud to host this exceptional exhibit that offers deeply personal work from photographers exploring new themes: "Five Views" represents recent work by five emerging photographers in the gallery of Calumet's Hollywood store located at 1135 N. Highland Ave. The exhibit begins January 8 and runs through February 8, 2013.

A public artist's reception will be held on January 11, between 5 and 8:30 p.m. with an artist talk at 6:30.

The five photographers whose work is on exhibit, Jim Maxwell, Geoffrey Silver, Tom Carmichael, Titano Cruz, and Al Shore, each explore uniquely different but deeply significant themes.

"In these artists' works one quickly feels the extended emotional range and recognizes their personal voices," said Bob Killen, the fine art program leader for Calumet University, the education and events division of Calumet Photographic.

Jim Maxwell, a multidisciplinary artist from Pismo Beach, shares images that explore nontraditional markers and gravesites that are equally nontraditional in terms of memory, and connects them through an austere house of worship. Geoffrey Silver, an economist from Beverly Hills, presents classical compositions from Death Valley that transform traditional pictorialism to thought-provoking metaphors on landscape peace. Building forms and structures found Tom Carmichael's eye, as he explored how physical design conformity affects those places in which we live and work.

Titano Cruz created work from Brazil and presents viewers with a picture-window view of oceanic tide pools that emphasizes grandeur and awe. Al Shore develops an L.A. street thematic, which presents precious moments of iconic and ironic reflections of Angelinos.

"While the subject matter is unique to each of these artists, the unifying power of light binds them into a common text of uncommon views that explores work that is a vision beyond documentation," Killen said.

"This level of work," said Marie Mazur, gallery manager, "is indicative of the depth and breadth of photography exhibits that Calumet is proud to exhibit and to help develop. We invite everyone to share time with the artists at our wine-and-cheese reception and review this new work."
