Oil & Water Arts
278 Winslow Way
Paul Brians shows images from his upcoming book “Four Seasons on Bainbridge” at Oil & Water in September.
Brians, who bought property on Bainbridge in 1994 and moved here in 2008, developed a passion for photography while teaching at the University of Washington at Pullman. After documenting his international travels, he turned his lens to the Palouse landscape where he lived. When he moved to Bainbridge with his wife Paula Elliott, he began to explore his new home one click at a time.
The result is a compilation, organized by seasond, that captures his experience of the island so far. Images include the flora, fauna and people he’s encountered.
Brians will show slides of his work and sign books at 7:30 p.m. Sept. 23 at Eagle Harbor Books, 157 Winslow Way. For more, visit his photo page at www.wsu.edu/~brians/tours.html.
