Tony Donovan's Saw Mill Photographs at the Essex Art Association

© Tony Donovan
Photographer and client Tony Donovan's black and white photographs from his saw mill series are featured at the Essex Art Association's Exit Gallery, located at 10 North Main St., Essex, Connecticut from July 29 until August 20, 2011. There will be an artist's reception on Friday, July 29, 2011 from 6:00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m.

Tony Donovan's photographs are an intimate look at the way of life centered around the family-run sawmill at which he worked in preparation for making a film around 1973.  The images are both lyrical and graphic, and have one foot rooted in journalism and the other in fine art. There is more information about the origin of the images here.

His prints combine the artistry of film photography with the new technology of archival fine art digital (giclee) printmaking.
