A SAMPLE OF OUR SILENT AUCTION ITEMS
The Tube, a framed photograph by Roger Gandall, measures 22” x 24”. Roger was attracted to this image because of the unique structure, angles and colors within the train, but also was inspired by the diversity of the people. When observing the scene, the artist looked at each person’s expression and could imagine each of them having a unique story to tell.
This photo was taken with a digital camera but artistically engineered using several different software programs (Photoshop, Topaz and Nik applications). Roger Gandall is a BallenIsles resident.
