Anatoliy Anshin

Anatoliy Anshin ( www.anshin.art ) is a fine art photographer who excels in the use of camera for depicting the beauty of Nature in a deeply symbolic way. Born in Russia, he lives permanently in Japan and his main work sites are old Buddhist temples and Shinto shrines where he can wander around for days in search for the picturesque blend of traditional culture with natural environment of perfectly maintained Japanese gardens. Some of the peculiar features of his works are breathtaking perspectives, extremely vibrant colors, nonstandard techniques such as blurring or shifting photographic subjects from the frame center that make his pictures all the more enigmatic and mesmerizing. Anatoliy’s distinctive personal style is based on the belief that postprocessing in photography is unnecessary – Nature has enough to offer us for appreciation and a beautiful photograph can be taken right in the moment the photographer triggers the shutter. His creativity is inspired by his profound scholarly background and physical training. A former university researcher, Anatoliy holds a Ph.D. in pre-modern Japanese history, is an author of a book and a number of academic articles, and is a teacher of Japanese swordsmanship, Kendo.

Scaling the Dunes

Janet M. Powers

I grew up in a family of photographers – both my grandfather and father were award-winning amateur photographers, and my father was well known for his slide travelogues. I received my first box camera at the age of seven and haven’t stopped taking pictures since. Keeping up with changes in camera technology has been a continuing challenge. Now that I’m retired from fifty years of teaching at Gettysburg College, I’ve found time to submit photos for exhibition. My images have been accepted by regional juried shows in Pennsylvania, Virginia, Colorado and Maryland. Among my five one-woman shows have been “The Balkan Backstory.” “Faces of Myanmar,” and “Barns of Adams County.”
