Telling Stories: Michael Haynes

I use photography as a way to tell a stories.  My subjects are eclectic, yet grounded in the principle that even the simplest objects in front of my lens have the ability to stimulate curiosity and evoke emotion. I take a lot of photos. Some of my photos are staged, such as those intended for stock use; however, the majority of my work is random and impulsive.  Whether on a run, going through day-to-day tasks or relaxing on a northern Michigan beach, I am always on the lookout for the next shot.  Regardless the subject, I want viewers of my work to imagine what took place before and after the shot so that they can share the experience. The works on display represent my attempt to use balance, rhythm and overall composition in order to showcase the beauty that exists in everyday life and in subjects that are around us. No cost for admission. Artwork is for sale.

“When I Stumble in Life’s Storms: A Bridge to Carry Me Home”: Priscillamae Olson 

Although the topic of suicide is uncomfortable, Priscillamae opens up the dialogue with her new book and artwork that explores suicide and its related life's storms of depression, poverty, homelessness, cults, bullying, and gender confusion. Through her artwork and book, Priscillamae shares personal stories of growing up, and as both counselor and teacher, dealing with difficulties and challenges in life's storms. Her original poetry is interlaced throughout giving voice to the silenced cries of teens and young adults who are experiencing a fragile state and paralyzing pain as they deal with the thunderous roar of life's rapids. No cost for admission. Artwork is for sale.
