— The Highlands Photography Guild is presenting “Fifty Shades of Grey,” an exhibition by award-winning international photographer, Linda Bock-Hinger. Her black and white photographs artistically combine the classic with the contemporary and bring an elegant quality to fine art photography.

Black-and-white is timeless, but more than that, it transcends reality and transforms an image into a realm that is neither abstraction nor reality. Black-and-white images combine black and white in a continuum producing shades of grey.

“Without the distractions of color, the image asks each viewer to see and understand the uniqueness of the subject," Bock-Hinger said. "It allows you, the viewer, to focus on form, texture, shape, composition and emotion.”

Bock-Hinger’s work has been shown in solo exhibitions, juried art and photography shows, public buildings and museums. Her international photographs have won many awards and prizes. She also teaches photography.
