Keith Levit’s ‘Faces and Places’ exhibit is currently underway here at Pixels. His photographs have transformed the space into a visually captivating memento of his time spent abroad and a reminder that there is so much more to life beyond our city’s limits. Keith has already made a few in-house appearances to communicate his love of travel and photography – the combination of which have allowed him to accumulate an incredible library of personal gems. If that weren’t enough, he will also be here on February 4 to conjure up even more memories and recount his observations of the different cultures he encountered along the way, in what is sure to be a very special presentation on matters that lie very close to his heart.

Keith Levit’s “Images of Bhutan” collection is now up on display at the gallery. The exhibit will be running from Jan. 15 to Feb. 27. Having barely been tainted by technological interferences, it will provide insight into a culture steeped in long-standing tradition and religious practice. Its people are of modest means, but their devotion to preserving their way of life is anything but.
I hope everyone had a festive holiday season, spent in the company of family and friends. The new year will bring in some interesting developments as we are poised to bring in some great local photographers, to display, teach and present.
First up, Alex Morrison will be kicking things off with a presentation on Infrared Photography in conjunction with our first First Friday event of the year. Alex takes a very methodical approach when photographing images and her adoption of infrared techniques gives her images a whole new dimension that few are familiar with. As one of the best in the industry, she’ll discuss the various complexities associated with taking infrared images as well as impart her knowledge of this underrated, but aesthetically provoking method of capturing pictures.
As for new exhibitions, local photographer Keith Levit’s portraits will be next to occupy the gallery’s walls. As an avid traveller, Keith has explored even the furthest reaches of the globe making sure to keep his camera by his side at all times. This has subsequently allowed him to capture moments of human expression along every step of the way.
His work has appeared in several local establishments as permanent installations and a selection of his photos have been compiled into published works. We’re very excited to be having him in to say the least. His exhibition will begin on January 11, 2011.
