Some Sacred Places of Romania and Bulgaria

 

Peter Alberti 

Peter Alberti, a retired surgeon is a compulsive traveler. He has recorded his trips since the early 1960s, first by 35mm slides and then digitally. He joined the Toronto camera club in 2004 where he has made over 50 presentations as part of the TCC outreach program. He also enjoys creating print shows of which this is his third at the Toronto camera club. Others include a solo Contact show at York Minster Park Baptist Church and a solo show of Chinese travels at the Arts and Letters Club of Toronto. His pictures have been seen in several local galleries. He was an avid Canon shooter, all the way from FTb up to Canon 5D Mark 11, but now finds that equipment too heavy carry and has switched to Fuji mirrorless cameras.

He found his recent trip to Romania and Bulgaria ( documented in this exhibition ) a cornucopia of sacred sites, although the weather was not always good for photography – a problem with travel trips. He was overwhelmed by both the number and variety of sacred places which he toured with excellent guides. The images on this trip were all made with a Fuji XT2 camera and a 16 – 55mm lens. As usual he would like to acknowledge the help of Daniel Dabrowski of Imaging Tree for his help with postproduction work and much of the printing of the images chosen for this show. All  profit from sales will be divided between MSF (Doctors Without Borders) and Romero House.

 

Members are encouraged to contact the Gallery Curator  for arranging photographic exhibitions. Photos may be framed, or the club’s frames may be used for exhibition purposes. There are normally four to six exhibitions during the year and exhibition notices are sent to the membership when appropriate.


Please join us upstairs on your next visit to the club.
