Untitled c-print photograph by Eleanor M. Imperato

The Purple Sins exhibition features 20 photographs by Eleanor M. Imperato, a writer, poet and photographer. Imperato has imbued these images with a poetic sensibility to evoke emotions and feelings. Whether they portray a house in a landscape of grass, sea and sky, the fecundity of ripe pomegranates, or an iron gate flanked by cypresses, we, the viewers relish the beauty of natural as well as manmade creations.

Do these photographs invite thought? Do we feel compelled to explore what lies behind the stand of trees with soft green leaves or do we turn away from that seeming barrier? Do we just see roses reflected in a pool or wonder if reflection is not necessarily truth? Viewers are invited to delve deeper into these mysteries through Imperato’s photographs and her poetry book of the same name, Purple Sins.
