Gallery Exhibit: Photographs by Judith Ennis

During the month of January 2017, The Teaneck Library will be presenting an exhibition of photographs by Fort Lee resident, Judith Ennis. For Ennis, travel brings opportunity to explore the exotic, engage the imagination and capture fragments of life through a camera's lens. She has always been intrigued by streets and doorways that beckon the unknown with their air of mystery and intrigue. She often focuses on the object that appears out of place in its environment, the broken branch or the building out of style with its surrounding architecture. Also a musician, Ennis is sensitive to the melodies and rhythms of life - stark contrasts, vibrant colors, and formal designs suggest various moods such as melancholy, vitality and serenity. As a computer skills teacher, she has applied her knowledge to digital photography. This relatively new technology allows her to linger more or revisit locales for further exploration. Photography is Judith Ennis's means of communicating with people. Through the closed doors in her photographs, she opens the doors of imagination.

The Teaneck Library is located at 840 Teaneck Road, Teaneck NJ.
