“Three Guys – Three Points of View” Photography Exhibit at Gaithersburg Activity Center

Photographers Peter Manzelli, Robert Catlett and Harald Hoiland have come together to present a fascinating exhibit of images they’ve titled “Three Guys – Three Points of View.”  Their works will be on display at the Activity Center at Bohrer Park, 506 South Frederick Avenue in Gaithersburg, Maryland from July 22 through September 18, 2011. Viewing hours are Monday through Saturday from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m., and Sunday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
 Peter Manzelli finds stairs amazing. The child in him says, “Look, look what’s there. Let’s go up and see.” By painting on his photographs he is able to establish a closer connection with the subject and enhance the storytelling quality. In Manzelli’s work, stairs are nothing more than a means of moving from one place to another, and yet so much effort is put into making that brief journey as pleasant as possible.
 Robert Catlett has almost 30 years of public service in the District of Columbia, and during this time has observed many faces and places. He tries to creatively and carefully capture the light behind eyes and the souls of neighborhoods he has visited. While taking a photographic vacation to Mexico, Catlett filmed many examples of expressions which are all digitally enhanced with pigmented inks.
 Harald Hoiland’s lifelong interest in photography began in his father’s dark room. In his travels throughout the world, his main focus has been taking pictures of landscapes; however, he has enjoyed watching people and capturing their moments as well as the surrounding architecture.  Hoiland’s works are individually printed with archival inks and papers.  All prints are produced to museum quality standards.
