Four local photographers have come together to exhibit their views of beach life through a lens. Pamela Z. Daum, Bob Dill, Carl Subich and Charles Szabla are featured in the upcoming show Life’s A Beach.
This exhibit was inspired by a collection of black and white infrared images by Pamela Daum that she titled Life is a Beach. Photographs in the series by Daum, a Kent photographer, start in Florida and continue to the "North Shores" in Ohio. She is joined by three other photographers who each share their take on the life’s a beach theme.
Carl Subich, of West Akron, also photographed beaches in Florida – along with Michigan and Akron. His use of multiple images is an exploration into the nature of time. Charles Szabla, of Bath, focused his camera on the North Coast, capturing Lake Erie as both a backdrop and a feature element in his work. Robert Dill, of Stow, features the serenity of the water’s edge in woodland settings in his photographs of the natural beauty along our many lakes and streams.
