“The camera is an instrument that teaches people how to see without a camera.”Dorothea LangePhoto Momenta was created in the fall of 2014. We are a group of seven women who first met as students at the Westmount Visual Arts Centre. Our instructor, Peter B. Ferst, a professional photographer, challenged our class to come up with a group project – we thought it would be fun to exhibit our work to our family and friends. Our first student photography exhibition was held at the Centre in December, 2012. Little did we know where this would lead. As the friendship that developed during these classes continued and strengthened, we looked for a way to continue to grow and develop our skills. We felt that by exhibiting our images we would be challenging ourselves, both as a group and individually, to expand our horizons and to each develop our individual vision and style. This is a continual work-in-progress.Photo Momenta’s upcoming fifth exhibition, to be held at The Montreal Art Centre d’art de Montréal, will showcase the work of this group of friends who have continued to photograph regularly together, sharing our passion for visual imagery whether in macro, street, landscape or creative image photography.
