Jim Witmer | ART + ALES
One event on January 7, 2018 at 12:00am
Jim Witmer, a photographer who currently excels particularly in black and white still life photography, is the next immensely talented artist to be featured here at Yellow Springs Brewery! As a career photographer and photo journalist with over 40 years experience, Jim has worked with almost every photographic medium imaginable, embracing new technologies, processes and formats as they’ve emerged. During his tenure at Ohio University in the early 80’s, one of Jim’s professors prophesied that photography would live mainly in the digital world with images being able to be sent from cameras directly for publication. As Jim puts it, “I’m glad to have lived long enough to see his words become reality.” His current exhibit features digital images put through a high resolution scanner for more intense focus on the subject of his photographs. This process is an example of Jim keeping a firm foothold in his traditional photographic training while incorporating new digital methods to elevate his artwork! As a freelance photographer, Jim was able to shoot commercial photography for the Yellow Springs Brewery in our early days. Jim’s experience as a home brewer for many years and time spent as craft beer sales rep has led him to believe in, not only the quality of YSB beers, but the quality of the brewery’s ownership and Nate and Lisa’s passion for the craft at which they work! The marvelous photographic works of Jim Witmer will be on display in the taproom art gallery until January 7th, 2018.
