"America in Kodachrome" Art Exhibit

Friday, September 22, 2017

Allen Arts Alliance Blue House Too presents David J. Stana’s photography of America’s National Parks.

Allen Arts Alliance Blue House Too presents David J. Stana’s photography of America’s National Parks.  David is one of very few people who have visited and photographed all the National Parks in the continental United States during a time when slide film, and in particular, Kodak’s Kodachrome slide film was king. David shares; “my journey through life has been with an instrument to record the beauty of what I see on earth. I endeavor to capture the essence of what I see in its purest form and offer it as my interpretation for others to enjoy”.  This exhibit captures one man’s use of slide film as a medium, his love of nature and in particular the National Park System. 

Beyond the exhibited images on the walls there are several multi-image slide shows including his earliest presentation, “Moods” that was produced over 40 years ago. This has become a lost art form since slides have been for the most part replaced with digital imaging and the slide show is now a video on YouTube.

David has a very diverse background in photography as well as the audio/visual field including Producer, Director, Photographer, Cinematographer & Staging Director. For more than four decades he traveled extensively throughout the National Parks. During that time, he photographed all the National Parks in the continental United States and Hawaii. The images in this collection are from film (slides) and are not Photoshop creations.
