The exhibit features images by local photographer and this year’s Arts of the Terrace “Best of Show” winner Dick McMahon.
McMahon has been a Seattle resident since 1953. He is mostly self-taught using books, photo seminars, studying the works of well-known photographers and shooting lots of film. He is interested in photographing anything and everything; his subjects vary widely.
McMahon shoots film exclusively and uses no Photoshop or other computer software to achieve his effects. All manipulations, distortions and enhancements of the subject are done using mechanical means attached to his camera. He sometimes employs multiple exposures as well.
McMahon has been published in the Kodak Viewfinder Forum, Inner Reflections Calendar, the Northshore Newspaper and the Best of Photography Annual. He has received many awards for his photos and is a member of the Seattle Photographic Society and the Northwest Council of Camera Clubs. He has taught photography for Kits Camera Stores, Arboretum Foundation, City of SeaTac, Northshore Senior Center, Shoreline Center, University of Washington Women’s Center and the Victory Heights F-H.
