New exhibit of abstract photographs

Hope Arts Gallery showcases Jutta and Michael Schulz in July

Jutta and Michael Schulz will be featured at the Hope Arts Gallery in July.

The couple immigrated to Canada in 1994 and now live in Chilliwack, where they run Light and Day Photography.

“Digital photography is our passion,” said Jutta.

“Between the two of us we cover the tiny world of macros to the beauty of nature and the magnificence of landscapes.”

They adhere closely to the principles of “genuine photography,” which means that computer manipulation of the images is kept to an absolute minimum.

Both photographers also pay special attention to the natural light and shadows, looking for interesting ways to use depth of field, try different viewing angles and possibilities to capture the images in a more abstract way.

For the backroom show at Hope Arts Gallery, they decided to print all images on metal.

“You’ll find the colors intense and full of depth,” said Jutta.

“The main focus of this exhibition is on abstract and minimalism themed images, but we also incorporate some nature scenes as well as close-ups.”

All the prints displayed are one-offs and will not be reproduced again.

The exhibition runs July 1-28, with an artists reception on July 7 from 2-4 p.m.
