MOBILE, Ala. – University of Mobile presents the photography exhibit “Mostly Monochrome” showcasing the work of UM associate professor of biology and award-winning photographer Steven Carey of Fairhope, Alabama.
Admission is free and the exhibit is on display through Dec. 15. Exhibit hours are Mondays through Fridays, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., in Ben May Hall on the university campus, 5735 College Pkwy.
Carey will discuss his work at a free Artist Talk on Dec. 7 at 2 p.m. in Ben May Hall. He is the author of “A Temporary Lack of Color – A Journey into a Monochromatic World,” a collection of photographs, to be published in December. For information about the exhibit and lecture, contact the UM College of Arts and Sciences at 251.442.2280.
Carey is an artist member of the Eastern Shore Art Center in Fairhope. An avid storm-chaser, his award-winning photographs of severe weather have appeared in newspapers, magazines and the Discovery Channel website.
His range of photographic interests includes infrared, high dynamic range, monochrome, medium format photography, and collecting and using vintage film cameras.
Shooting both digital and film, Carey’s photographs typically convey emotion to the viewer and pull the observer into the frame.
“If one of my images makes a person pause and reflect something from within, then I consider that photograph a success,” Carey said.
Carey has had a lifelong interest in photography and the creative challenges it affords for self-expression.
“The challenges are both technical and personal,” he said. “Deciding on the proper exposure, framing and composition are a part of the process, but more important to me is trying to capture what my mind’s eye sees as a final image.”
