Artist Profile: A Long, Winding Road

“State Street Flags”

Looking for something fun and free to do that’s indoors?

Check out some of Brian DeWolf’s photography, which is on display through Jan. 31 in the visual Art Gallery, located on the second floor of the Grand Gallery of the Paramount Theatre, located at 23 E. Galena Blvd. in Aurora.

The collection includes pieces and large-scale banner prints shot in France from DeWolf’s exhibit shown in May 2009 at Croissy sur Seine, France, which were shot in France. More recent photos of the Fox Valley area also will be on display. Most of the pieces are available for purchase.

A Detour Along The Way DeWolf, a Batavia resident, traveled a long, winding road before becoming a photographer, but art was always in the back of his mind.

“Photography is a form of recording life,” DeWolf says. “Adjusting or editing the photograph is a form of interpreting life. The magic happens after the picture is taken when the artist bends and twists the information to give the image personality.”
