First Friday Showcase – Chris Richman

Chris Richman — 2020.12.04

Most photographers in North Carolina’s Triangle area and far beyond, know Chris Richman as a judge for juried exhibitions and critique sessions of our work, but few may be acquainted with her imagination and exacting skills in her own photography. With her extensive credentials and awards (listed below), it is difficult to separate her much sought after expertise as an instructor and educator, from the idea that she also has a body of work that clearly illustrates a creative spirit that begins with an idea, rather than tripping the shutter. Many of us understand how processing in Photoshop can become complicated with many separate layers; but when we realize that some of Chris’ work involves a mind-blowing 1400 layers, we might begin to comprehend the depth of her creativity and organizational skills.

Apart from these creations, which will be the focus of this Showcase, she also has another body of “conventional” work that is extraordinarily creative as well, and we hope that she will also touch on a few examples of those during her talk this coming Friday, December 4th, at her Live Zoom Reception beginning at 7pm EST. To get a greater understanding of her work, her imagination and passion, as well as a chance to speak with her about her work, members of local photo organizations will be supplied, through their particular facebook pages, with the necessary information to join the reception through Zoom. If you are not a member of a local photo organization, reservations to attend the reception can be requested through Chris’ web site using the link below, and information will be supplied through your email. I encourage everyone to visit her web site for a ride through the work of this true visionary.
