#21—An Original Matted & Framed "Lisbon" Print by Dick Bennett, 19x25”

Dick Bennett: "I have always been enthralled with the power of an image to teach, to challenge, to capture an experience, to focus attention or to tell a story. Photography is a way of sharing oneself with the viewer. Every person sees the world though our own experiences. When I photograph a scene or a person, I am sharing my interpretation with the viewer. A nod of the head, a word, or an exclamation let me know that I have reached someone with my images and a momentary bond forms."  Dick Bennett Photography, Rochester, NY  Price: $225
