Almost Black and White

January 7 to February 14, 2014
Portage & District Arts Centre, Portage la Prairie
Almost Black and White is a photography exhibit by Stan Weibe. While Stan has wielded his camera in 'exciting' places like Brazil and the Rocky Mountains, and has shot big game such as humpback whales in Mexico and elephant seals in California, his vision is evolving and recently he has been shifting to the monochromatic world of black and white. Since he is not fully there yet he has been inspired to create this new gallery show.
