Opening Exhibit

"Imagining from Above - Art as Seen from a Drone" by Tony Carosella Photographing from drones has become very controversial since drones have been synonymous with spying and assassination. Carosella's approach is not at all sinister, but more of a controlled aerial photography art form. The vantage point of the drone can have a mystical quality since it hovers above in places that might not permit conventional aircraft. There is a skill and technical savvy that is combined to create this work, and it opens new avenues of creativity for Carosella and many other photographers and videographers.
