Photography on Canvas Show- John Carlson Photography on Canvas Show- John Carlson

(Photo by John Carlson, copyright 2008)

I am showing a series of large photographs printed on canvas in a show called, "LANDSCAPE" at Kevin's Restaurant, in North Bennington, Vermont. I have always enjoyed the long compositions inherent in panoramic images. This is a series experimenting with that format. The show runs for the month of November.

So, please, go and enjoy a decent meal and let me know your impressions of the work. Thanks.
