ART | "From Ancient to Modern" 

If you think something's a little off with the lighting in the images in Steven Randell's photo exhibit, you'd be right. "From Ancient to Modern: Classic Greek Architecture in Black, White and Blue," currently on view at Gay Alliance's Gallery Q (100 College Avenue, Suite 110), features 60 infrared photographs from his November 2015 trip to Athens and Mykonos. The surfaces of the pristine architecture and hillsides couldn't possibly have been so brightly lit by the seemingly nighttime skies — but the otherworldly effect is achieved through a kind of photography sensitive to the infrared spectrum of light. Randell shot the iconic, building-lined coasts and flora-laden rocky hills using a modified Canon 40D SLR camera, making the sensor sensitive to infrared light.

"These images show the interplay of infrared light and how it behaves beyond our normal perception," Randell says. "Greece with its ancient modern white toned monuments and architecture is perfectly suited to IR photography."

The show continues through Friday, April 29. Gallery hours are Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. For more information, call 244-8640 or visit
