Exhibit of infrared photography opens
Bradford Kissell’s infrared photography will be on display at the Hopkins Center for the Arts through July 28.
Kissell uses a specially adapted digital camera to capture his images. The title of the show, “715nm,” reflects the fact that black-and-white infrared film is sensitive to light in wavelengths in the 700-900 part of the electromagnetic spectrum, often called the “near-infrared,” though Kissell does not use film.
There are 32 images in the show, which will be featured on both levels of the Center’s Lobby Gallery.
The exhibit is open to the public anytime the building is open, generally from 8 a.m.-8 p.m. Monday-Friday, 10 a.m.-8 p.m. Saturday and noon-5 p.m. Sunday.
The Hopkins Center for the Arts is located at 1111 Mainstreet in Hopkins.
