Through X-ray photography, Don Dudenbostel is able to capture the hidden inner beauty in objects of the natural world, such as flowers and shells.  The delicate nature of Don’s work draws the viewer in, allowing them to take a glimpse into a world that is not visible to the naked eye.  The simple beauty of each object is captured with elegance, detail, and intriguing clarity.  He studied photography directly with Ansel Adams, and has exhibited his award-winning photographs internationally, as well as in the United States.

“We have been representing Don since 2007, and have always had his x-ray images of flowers and shells on display.  We have featured his work on numerous occassions, however this will be the first Solo Show we have had for Don Dudenbostel.   This is the perfect collection to feature during the summer, when folks are enjoying the freshest fruits and vegetables from the local farmers market.  Only these fruits and vegetables can be enjoyed all year long!” says Kit Porter, gallery director.

We are pleased to be featuring a new collection of X-ray images by Don Dudenbostel for the month of July.  Don dives into the vegetable bin with a new collection focuses on familiar fruits and vegetables, shown in an unfamiliar way.  Come visit Martin Gallery during the month of July and take a glimpse into the natural patterns and textures of your food, as can only be revealed through X-ray photography: chili peppers, okra and lemons, oh my!

The show will open on Friday, July 1st and we will welcome Don with an Artist’s Reception from 5-8 pm.  Then, on Saturday, stop by the gallery at 11:30 am for a Artist’s Lecture.  The gallery will provide mimosas and muffins for guests as they enjoy a free lecture, where Don will talk a little bit about his process.
