The Boca Raton Public Library is pleased to exhibit “In the Fog,” by photographer Irina Dakhnovskaia-Lawton, at the Downtown Library. Dakhnovskaia-Lawton's beautiful and delicate prints channel pictorialism, a style of photography that was popular at the turn of the 20th century using soft-focus techniques to imitate academic painting.
Born in Latvia, then raised and educated in Moscow, Dakhnovskaia-Lawton is now a resident of South Florida. She began photographing professionally in 1996 while living and working in Eritrea, North Africa, and later in Guinea, West Africa. She has also worked as a freelance photographer in China and the Russian Far East. She earned an MFA in photography from the Maine Media College in Rockport, Maine, and is now a resident artist at the Bakehouse Art Complex in Miami. Her work has been shown internationally at museums, art fairs, and galleries and in magazines and newspapers.
“In the Fog” will run from September 1–30, 2017, at the Downtown Library, an Art in Public Places venue, at 400 NW 2nd Avenue. The exhibit is free and open to the public during regular library hours.
