"Freddie Kelvin: An Inquisitive Eye" visual art review 

Local photographer Freddie Kelvin, who shoots in both color and black and white, is extremely eclectic in his subject matter. He shoots his landscapes (including a picture of sand dunes entitled "Broad Ripples") and portraits in diverse domestic and international settings. His portrait of two rice pickers shot somewhere in Southeastern Asia shows the pickers bent over a rice paddy, but their presumably weary faces are entirely concealed from you by their colorful garb and conical hats. Such difficult, utterly necessary labor is rendered quaint by Kelvin's compositional choice. Elsewhere, Kelvin shows himself to be a serviceable portrait (and dance performance) photographer, with a knack for catching people in unguarded, often contemplative, moments. While some of his nature photographs seem no more artfully composed than snapshots, his better landscapes also show an eye for composition and successfully radiate the beauty he strives to capture in his work.
