The Long Beach Island branch of the Ocean County Library in Surf City will host an exhibit by photographer Frederick Ballet in the branch’s meeting room during May.
Ballet has been fascinated with the natural world from an early age. Last fall, he became the first student to successfully complete the Philadelphia Photo Arts Center’s Contemporary Practices Photography Certificate program.
“The beauty of the natural world has always filled me with an existential fascination,” Ballet said. “In my work I seek to balance realism with abstraction, at times capturing the surreal. My images give the viewer the smallest anchor of reality, leaving the rest to the imagination. My goal is for you to leave with a meditative sense of beauty, peace, and timelessness.”
