Ballard resident and artist Howard Snyder opened his solo photography exhibition at the Seattle Creative Arts Center (2601 NW Market St) on March 4th. The exhibition will display 20 large format color photographs of Snyder’s work as a fine art landscape photographer.
The exhibition will be held until March 31st and focuses on the outdoors and landscape of the Pacific Northwest. An opening reception will be held this Sunday, March 10 from 3 p.m. – 6 p.m.
Originally from Mexico City, Snyder has lived in the United States since 1999 and has spent the last 8 years in Seattle. Snyder has a background in visual communication and graphic design and began making photographs in 1994 as part of his college degree. Over time, his photography evolved from its academic roots to his own brand of distinct artistic expression.
“In 1996 I struggled with the decision to whether become a professional photographer or pursue a career in graphic design. I chose the latter,” said Snyder.
Snyder’s exhibition will comprise exclusively of landscape photographs that showcase the latest in digital photographic post-production. In his work, Snyder highlights many advanced digital dark room techniques such as multiple exposure blending and luminosity selections.
The exhibition will also feature work of international choreographer Diana Garcia-Snyder. Garcia-Snyder has created improvisation and choreography for the opening reception this weekend.
The show is now open to the public and is free of charge. It is partially funded by the Seattle Office of Arts & Cultural Affairs and is also sponsored by Red River Paper.
