Join us Thursday

for the opening reception

with photographer Emily Dolenz

at Tryst, October 6, 7-9pm.

The upcoming exhibition, for photographer Emily Dolenz, will be the
first solo showing of her work in Washington, D.C. Opening at Tryst
Coffeehouse in Adams Morgan, on Thursday, October 6, 2011, 7-9 p.m.,
this exhibition features fine art photographs from Dolenz’s latest
body of work which reflect her unique view of the world. The
exhibition will remain on view until November 1, 2011.

Although born and raised in London, England, Emily Dolenz spent a fair
amount of time as a child in the United States with her father Micky
Dolenz, drummer for the band The Monkees. Artistic aspirations run in
the Dolenz family, after graduation from the University of
Wolverhampton in England, Emily moved to Washington, D.C. and attended
the Washington School of Photography in Bethesda, MD. Having been in
the States for just 5 years, the artist has already started her own
photography     company, producing commissions for commercial art
clients. In addition, this young artist is continuing to pursue a
career in fine art and exhibits work around the D.C. metro area, as
well as participates in several local art fairs. Emily has donated
image rights of her work for non-profits use, such as the Whitman
Walker Clinic in D.C., who used an image of the artist’s work for a
donor mail campaign in 2010. She also donates work to charity auctions
at the Whitman Walker Clinic as well as United Cerebral Palsy. The
continued support of nonprofits and ability to raise awareness for
special causes is of personal importance to Emily.

Of her photographs, Dolenz says, “The images express my angle on the
world. They are designed to show the observer my view of a ‘normal’
scene or object.” Colorful and ranging in subject matter from
architecture to nature, the estimated 12 photographs all 24” x 30”,
have universal appeal. Always having her camera on hand, Emily
documents her day-to-day walks around town as well as her travels. To
view Emily Dolenz’s work is to take a trip with her around the world.
A banal scene comes to life in a unique way. She takes an every day
scene and focuses in on one area or takes the shot from a unique angle
to make it her own. A simple hot air balloon ride in San Diego, CA,
Rise Above, becomes a breathtaking aerial landscape. An every day walk
on the beach in Cozumel, Mexico becomes Greek Beach when Dolenz
stumbles upon this architecture left on the sand. Quiet Café, taken in
Puerto Rico, is a small spot the artist stopped at for a rest on her
travels but turns into a photo that looks like stopped in time.
Dolenz’s work is straight photography with minimal computer
assistance. Contrast or saturation might be adjusted but for the most
part they are what you see. And what you see is beautiful.
