Michael Largent’s New Photo Collection: Bokeh And Zen

The In-Town Gallery is gearing up for its March exhibit, Bokeh and Zen.  It’s a collection of nature images from Michael Largent, a Chattanooga photographer who is one of the In-Town Gallery’s newest members.

Largent joins us today to talk about his work.  He says, the word Bokeh refers to the aesthetic quality of the out-of-focus areas of a photograph.  In other words, the images are kind of blurry.  (At least, some of the photos in this new exhibit are partially blurry.)  But the thing is.. they’re blurry in a way that looks purposeful.  Think of a hazy, shadowy close-up of green leaves against a white background.
