Photography by Hope Baker will be on display in the White Salmon Valley Community Library's Sprint/Baker Gallery now through June 27.
The show will be available to the public for viewing during regular library hours Tuesday 10-8 and Wednesday through Saturday 10-6.
Baker, a native of the White Salmon/Husum area, currently lives in Lyle. She has enjoyed photography since her youth, and as the "shutterbug" of the family, has captured innumerable memories.
Using a variety of cameras over the years, she now uses a Konica Minolta digital camera; however, except for the occasional conversion to black and white, none of her photographs are digitally color enhanced.
What Baker finds most exciting about photography is capturing not just the image, but the essence of what she glimpses through the camera lens. She makes skillful use of varying camera angles to alter the effects of lighting, but believes that many excellent photographs are the result of being in the right place at the right time.
Other area locations to view Baker's works include Farmer's Insurance and Artisan's Jewelry in White Salmon, Lilo's Hawaiian BBQ on Second St. in The Dalles, and DelCarpine Automotive in Hood River.
