Daniel Oppenheim: Where Words End...

open at Ossining Public Library Gallery, October 1-30, 2017


An exhibition of large-scale photographs by Croton-on-Hudson based photographer Daniel Oppenheim, who traveled to Vienna in June 2017 on a commission to capture portraits of members of the uprising Liberation Orchestra. On his time off Oppenheim created a new body of work that dramatically departs from his well known images of the natural world and formal portraits.


“It all started with an image I happened to take with my iPhone in a party late 2016 in Vienna. It blew my mind away, but I had no idea why. For days and weeks I kept coming back to it, relentlessly trying to understand why. And then it hit me. Through that Image I became privy to an intimate connection between two human beings. A fascinating story begun to unfold, but not through words. It was told by my eye, through subtle gestures, the position of an index finger, the raising of a brow. It was a story that existed only in that fraction of a second when my finger happened to click. Then it was gone, forever.


So I started to do what I did when I composed music. Then it was ear training. Now I call it eye training. As composer I trained so I could create for the listener an experience I was imagining. As photographer I'm now training my eye to detect human experiences as they occur."


Oppenheim spent his life exploring intersections between music, art, and science. He built his first darkroom as a teenager in his hometown of Jerusalem, Israel, to support his early work as a professional photographer. His photographs are on permanent exhibition at the Hotel Allegro in Vienna, Austria, can be viewed in galleries along the Hudson Valley, and seen online at www.danoppenheim.com.  His work has been collected locally and internationally.


“Daniel Oppenheim: Where Words End...” is open Mondays and Thursdays 9 am – 9 pm, Tuesdays and Fridays 10 am - 6 pm, Wednesdays 1 pm - 9 pm, Saturdays 9 am – 5 pm, and Sundays 1pm – 5 pm, at the Ossining Public Library, 53 Croton Avenue, Ossining NY 10562.  The Ossining Public Library is accessible by Metro North / Hudson line trains to Ossining station.
