The Psalm Visual Arts Gallery opens for the 2008-09 academic year with the international photography of Salem resident, Samuel Hall. Mr. Hall has been taking photographs most of his adult life, and has travelled from Southern Africa to the Arctic Ocean, and China, but some of his subject matter comes from his adopted state of Oregon. His work will be on display until September 26th.
A self-taught photographer, he uses a Nikon D40 digital SLR and a 1963 Hasselblad 500 C medium format camera. He has been a featured artist in numerous showings at galleries in Salem and Portland.
He is also a published author and has been a licensed architect in Oregon for over 30 years.
