CEPA was so happy to be invited by Camp Centerland to do a specialty camp again this year. The weather was incredible, and the students were thrilled to wander the many acres of trails and creeks in Getzville. They got so many amazing photos! They also did cyanotypes and wrote about their photographs in journals.
Contest participation is open to all who have taken photographs of the exterior of the Richardson Olmsted Complex -- either on an official photography tour of the Richardson Olmsted Complex, or at any other time. Volunteer Richardson Center Corporation docents who were not part of the planning of this contest are eligible to enter.

His series “Totems for a Flattened Now,” on view until March 5 at CEPA Gallery in Buffalo, features bits of classical sculpture pictured in the studio or found in incongruous spots, and makes a comparison between the enduring nature of these iconic stones and the digital world’s brief half-life. The photos, Alvarez-Perez writes in a statement, “explore the ways by which images, myths and symbols are recycled, transformed, and re-represented according to our culture’s ever changing needs and desires.” In one photo, Venus on the Half Shell poses in front of a pet store goldfish tank, as if emerging from its waters; in another, a photo of Venus de Milo is set among fake
