They say the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. You can see that talent does indeed have a genetic component in Carry Out Cafe’s latest gallery show. Amesbury photographers Morton Gilbert and his daughter Sandy Gilbert, both self-taught with respect to their art, highlight their phenomenal ability in their work currently on display. Entitled “In Just a Moment”, the collection of images is a recurring theme for the Gilberts. It stems from the fact that single frame high resolution photography permits capturing the briefest of moments, preserving them potentially forever.
But whether what appears in the camera’s viewfinder is fast moving, static or somewhere in between, the professional photographer’s goal is to coordinate, often in mere moments, the attainment of well composed, appropriately illuminated, interesting subject material and the correct camera control setting by which to produce eye-catching photographic results.
From corporate and industrial photos to location shots, informal candids and stock images, Morton and Sandy do it all. The Gilbert team’s favorite subjects are diverse. They sometimes say that “al things” are considered: agricultural, anatomical, botanical, comical, and more.
They strive to produce fine art photography to enhance residential and business decor. The Gilbert’s work has been featured at Amesbury’s Provident Bank Lobbies for the Arts, the Amesbury Cultural Council’s Open Studio Tours, The Newburyport Art Association, Chiller Photographic Images, Wenham Museum Artisan Fair, Caffe di Siena and the University of New Hampshire’s Evergreen Fair. Learn more about their work at Copper Beech Studio.
They say that they feel fortunate to live in a community so supportive of the arts. We think that we are the lucky ones. Please support this local business, take a closer look at the art on display at Carry Out Cafe and consider bringing some of their work home with you. All images are available for sale.
