“Seldom does the photographer simply look at a subject. To capture the unique essence of a subject – whether landscape, portrait, abstract, or one single flower – the viewer must look deep within it. This action may happen in a decisive moment, catching the laugh on a child’s face on a carousel, or over months of photographic examination of the same subject. As we look in and through a photograph it can create a feeling, or stimulate thought, or create tension. The image becomes a feast for our eyes and nourishes our spirits. We are changed.”
Jim Auerbach’s photographic work includes product photography for the Kennedy Center, pictures in a Library of Congress video, work as a conference photographer, and as a volunteer photographer for numerous non-profit organizations. His pictures have appeared on the CNN website, several Kennedy Center publications, newspapers and other websites. His photographs were also used to illustrate a children’s book "Little Georgia and the Apples" by award winning author Carolivia Herron.
Jim’s images have been displayed at the Sandy Spring Museum, VisArts in Rockville, Johns Hopkins University Montgomery County campus, and a juried exhibition at Gallery 919 Market in Wilmington, Delaware, where his images were selected as "Best in Show.” He has also curated and organized photography shows in Kensington and Potomac, Maryland.
In addition, his work has appeared in multi-media, and photography exhibitions in the Baltimore-Washington Photographers Art Association exhibit at the Maryland Miller Senate Building in Annapolis, in “Journeys,” an exhibition at the Tate Gallery in Silver Spring, Zed’s Café in Silver Spring, at the Holiday Park Multiservice Center in Wheaton, and the Washington School of Photography in Rockville, Maryland, and in the “Spirit of Fall” exhibition in Columbia. Recently, his images were exhibited at Artists and Makers 2 in Rockville, Maryland, and at The Meeting House Gallery in Columbia, Maryland.
Jim’s photography is inspired by his travels to many areas around the world.
