Buena Vista photographer Bill Mehaffey captures the outdoors in a collection
of photographs on
display at Heart of the Rockies Regional Medical Center through Sept. 30.
“This collection of my work is comprised of images that are both
real and some imagined. Some were constructed from two or more images
to obtain the desired result, while others were processed to present the
beauty of the scene,” said Mehaffey.
Mehaffey pursued his interest in photography during his career in medical
sciences. He took elective photography courses and had his own darkroom
where he enjoyed processing prints. At one point, he took a break from
photography and then returned to his passion during the industry’s
transition from film to digital photography.
He is self-taught in digital photography and uses the art of printing as
a way to enhance the expression of an image.
All of his photos in the hospital exhibit are for sale, and 25 percent
of the proceeds are donated to the HRRMC Foundation. This will be the
third exhibit this year, which is part of the hospital’s mission
to create a healing environment.
