The Lopez Island Library is pleased to feature the photography of Bill Evans. His show, titled “HOME: A Collection of Images Capturing the Emotions of Place” will be on display at the Lopez Library through September 8th.

He offers this narrative of his work: “My photographic passion is to capture the emotion of a place and, in this exhibit, that place is my ‘Home’ in the San Juan Islands. I seek out compelling landscapes and work to capture them in beautiful light. Using both digital and film cameras, I strive to capture my images with a single exposure without the use of Photoshop manipulation. This often results in many more failures than successes, but repeated trips to a location helps me develop the relationship with the scene that I need to capture my images.  I’ve been a passionate photographer for over 30 years and apart from a few classes and darkroom work in college, I’m self-taught … a process that continues each day I go out in search of beauty and light.” – Bill Evans
