Menlo Park photographers

Post image for Menlo Park photographer Merrie Asimow works featured at Gallery 9 in November

An exhibition of photographs, Unbridled Passion by Menlo Park photographer Merrie Asimow, is featured this month at Gallery 9. The exhibit, on display from November 4-30, 2014, includes three bodies of work: Unbridled, Merrie’s renowned pictures of the white horses of the Camargue; Running Hot and Cold featuring extremes in nature, and Loose on the Palouse, a collection of landscape images taken in southeastern Washington (featured image above).

Traveling all over the world, Merrie takes the raw beauty she photographs, adds her creative talent, and like other artists, turns the image into a work of art. Merrie has been living in Menlo Park and working as a full time photographer since 2010 after moving from Los Angeles. Her work has been featured in magazines and  won prizes.

A reception for the artist will be held Saturday, November 8 from 4:00-8:00 pm as well as during the Los Altos “Open Friday” which takes place on November 7 from 5:00-8:00 pm.

Gallery 9 is one of five artist-owned and operated cooperative galleries on the Peninsula. The gallery was established in 1970 in Menlo Park and later moved to 13 Main Street, Los Altos in 1973.

Although it took some decades for Barry Fleisher to re-embrace photography, he remembers first getting bit by the camera bug while in his 20s. “I got a Nikkormat in the 1960s and started taking photos of friends and the trips I took,” he recalls. “I was mostly into landscapes.” A retired neonatologist, Barry has lived […]

I have a feeling most Menlo Park residents drive right by St. Patrick’s Seminary on Middlefield Road without giving it a second thought. Maybe this photograph will make them turn up the driveway some day, go in the front door and ask to see the chapel —an awe-inspiring structure well worth the one block side trip. […]

Photographing Myanmar, Menlo Park resident Ann Eddington saw hopefulness. She found the preservation of the country’s decaying temples whispered the days when Burma was a major world power. Amid the many vestiges of traditional Burmese culture, she found sparks of modernity — small details, like solar cells and a newfound enthusiasm for neon lights. The community […]

Upon return, she did a cursory glance of the 8,000 images that she captured but didn’t fully circle back on her body […]

By her own account, long-time Menlo Park resident Alice Cummings fell back into photography rather than pursuing it. “When I was growing up I had a dark room and an enlarger and would make prints for my family,” she said, sitting at a picnic table at the Jasper Ridge Biological Preserve, where she is a […]
