There is an exhibit of photographs by Chip Forelli entitled ‘Terra Emota’ at the CameraWork Gallery in Scranton. The exhibition will continue until June 29, 2011.
Chip Forelli’s photographic career encompasses 25 years as a professional photographer with international gallery representation and publication credits including the cover and a feature profile in Communication Arts as well as articles in Photo District News, Graphis, Lenswork, Rangefinder and Lürzer’s Archive. His images have been incorporated into all Apple Macintosh operating systems as desktop background choices. Solo exhibitions of his work have been at the Steinhardt Conservatory Gallery of the Brooklyn Botanic Garden, the Mercedes Benz Gallery of New York, the Art Institute of Atlanta, the Whyte Museum of the Canadian Rockies and Hoopers Gallery in London, England.
Originally trained as an architect and musician, Forelli was drawn to photography because it shared with architecture and music “the demand for a fine balance between aesthetic sensibility and skill in craft. If you alter the balance, you run the risk of becoming overly conceptual or preoccupied with technique.”
Chip Forelli lives in the Upper Delaware Valley of Pennsylvania with his wife Gloria and three sons, Jake, Cris and Ryan.
