Redpoint Collective is proud to welcome Boston photographer Lou Jones to Kansas City June 6th. As the featured artist in our exhibit Focus on the World, Jones is helping us raise money for panAFRICAproject and Operation Breakthrough.

Lou Jones’ eclectic career has evolved from commercial to the personal. It has spanned every format, film type, artistic movement and technological change. He maintains a studio in Boston, Mass. and has photographed for Fortune 500 corporations and international companies. His images have been published all over the world including in Time/Life, National Geographic and Paris Match. Jones initiated long term projects on the civil wars in Central America, death row, Olympics Games and pregnancy and published multiple books.

Jones received accolades from organizations like Communication Arts Magazine, Art Directors Club of Boston, Travel Photographer of the Year and International Photographic Council (United Nations). Nikon recognizes Jones as a Legend Behind the Lens and Lowepro honored him as a Champion.

Jones lectures and teaches workshops all over the world. His first book, Final Exposure: Portraits from Death Row, earned Jones the Ehrmann Award from Massachusetts Citizens Against the Death Penalty. Since then, he published numerous other books including Travel+Photography: Off the Charts and Speedlights and Speedlites: Creative Flash Photography at Lightspeed.

The Magic of a Photograph

by shari on May 6, 2019

Photographs can be deceiving. An image that appears tranquil and quiet may have actually been taken in the midst of racket and chaos. That is just one of the magical powers a photographer can create in a print. In Chihuly in the Sky, St. Louis, Mary Winter photographs the illusion of glass floating in the sky, and in Shari Hartbauer’s image of a woman meditating

There are many such moments on display in the group photography exhibit Focus on the World, May 3 – July 6 at the Leedy-Voulkos Art Center. All are welcome.

Preview the exhibit catalog.
