David Biehler’s photographs are showing at the Imperial Hotel through the month of January. A local photographer based here in Chestertown and also in Northern Virginia, David has chosen images for this exhibit that convey the character of Chestertown and other seaside and water oriented communities. The views from the bridge of sunsets and fireworks over the tall ships are unique, especially with the orientation of the moon. These views capture a moment in time that can never be duplicated. All of these images are the way they actually appeared; there is no digital manipulation.
This philosophy has become a trademark of David’s work. It might be a frog floating in a reed filled pond with the sun illuminating and highlighting the animal’s skin texture and eyes or the trees in the morning snow at Wilmer Park. It might be the tidal waves at driftwood beach on Jekyll Island. That is the beauty of still photography – it enables the viewer to savor the moment that may have been only a fleeting instant. All work is printed on archival materials using Epson pigments and papers. They will last a lifetime if properly handled and displayed.
David is active in camera clubs in both Virginia and Maryland. He has served as President of the Vienna, Virginia Photographic Society and maintains their web site. He has been published in such prestigious magazines as Nature’s Best. David’s favorite photography locations cover the east coast from the Carolinas to Nova Scotia as well as the mountains and landscape of Pennsylvania and West Virginia.
