About Jim Dow
Jim Dow, the man behind the whole exhibition, is a well-known American photographer. He has a unique approach – He specializes in photographing places, instead of people. Some may say that he portrays awe, affection, and a little bit of melancholy in his photos. The “Field of Dreams” exhibit features Dow’s detailed, 8 x 10 inch negatives of several American and Canadian ballparks shown from a fan’s point of view. Other than this exhibition, Jim Dow’s other works are also expanding and becoming very successful. So, don’t miss out on your chance to see some iconic stadium photographs on display this month!
The “Field of Dreams” will only be on display for 8-10 weeks, so plan your visit ASAP! Terrence Mann from The Field of Dreams once said, “This field, this game- it’s a part of our past…It reminds us of all that once was good and it could be again!” With that being said, Terrence is right.
