" The selective eye of the photographer is often on the lookout for images which are not only unique and beautiful, but also spirited - endowed with what could be called “the life force”. You may find that zestful spirit expressed in many of the photos in this exhibit. To a large extent, the focus of this collection is on human beings, sometimes playfully engaged, usually un-posed. A typical feature of the group photos is active connection and interaction between the individuals portrayed, particularly in some of the photos of children. Quite often, this dynamic quality is also evident in views of sea and sky, street scenes and landscapes. Beyond that, the photographer is always striving for that sense of compositional balance which enhances all art.

Wyn* is the pseudonym for Irwin Shishko, a quixotic old fellow who has dabbled enthusiastically in many fields. An economist in an early incarnation, Wyn was later chairman of a small group encouraging medical research, a student at the Parson’s School of Design, an amateur architect who conceived and built a half dozen unique homes, the writer of countless political letters, the author of many poems, two historical plays, and ..oh yes.. an avid photographer. "
