The St. Johns Cultural Council is pleased to present “Snapshot St. Augustine”, photographs by Kenneth M. Barrett, Jr., on display in the Rotunda Gallery. Photographs selected for this exhibit cover a wide range of events and activities in and around St. Augustine. The removal of historic and everyday structures, long lost signage, historic reenactments, views of the shorelines and landscapes are captured using black and white films, color slide and print film and finally digital imaging. Ken has printed all his black and white images in his darkroom using Ilford papers. The snapshot idea is a reference to Ansel Adams who remarked that the snapshot allows us to record the everyday events which surround us, and later these take on a newer meaning.
The St. Johns Cultural Council will host an opening reception for this exhibit on Tuesday, August 4, beginning at 8:15 am, just before the Board of County Commission meeting. The public is welcome and encouraged to attend.
The St. Johns County Administration Building is open to the public from 8 am until 5 pm Monday through Friday.
