Dave Shafer's photographic art work is strongly rooted in Americana themes, adventures and totems. The images for this exhibit have all be captured with film and a 50+ year old 4x5 format camera. No matter the camera or subject, Dave's devotion is to capture the fleeting moments of gesture and light.
