LARCHMONT, N.Y. -- The Oresman Gallery at the Larchmont Public Library is exhibiting the photography of local filmmaker and photographer Grannell Knox. The exhibit, “Morocco to Turkey: A Photographic Journey”, will be on display from Thursday through Aug. 28.
There will be a reception in the Oresman Gallery on Saturday, July 11, from 2:30-4 p.m. celebrating Knox and his unique exhibit. The exhibit and reception are free, and everyone is invited.
Knox is a filmmaker and photographer from Mamaroneck. His passion for film and video began with home movies. This interest eventually matured into Knox making his own narrative short films. He began taking 35mm photographs as he studied the technical side of filmmaking at New York University.
Knox saw photography, the single still frame, as the foundation of motion film. There is always a sense of movement in the photographs, whether it be motion blur in a single frame or a series of photographs that span a physical distance.
The images in "Morocco to Turkey: A Photographic Journey" were taken during 2014. They depict the people and places Knox encountered while traveling in the two countries. Images range from urban to rural and from touristic to native. All the photographs were taken on 35mm film and developed abroad.
