Jim Rohrer Photographs at Wellfleet COA
A show of work by photographer Jim Rohrer, “Cryin’ Holy!: Looking for Salvation,” will be at the Wellfleet Council on Aging at 715 Old King’s Highway through Feb. 7, with a reception on Saturday, Jan. 11, 3-5 p.m.
“As a photographer, I’m drawn to expressions of faith as a subject,” Rohrer says in the show’s announcement. “They have inherent beauty; they cry out to be heard or seen, heard, or understood.”
The photographs in the exhibit were shot on film in the U.S. and Ireland between 2005 and 2017 and were archivally printed and framed. They are for sale by the artist.
