We know Jack Mader is a fine photographer. We have attended several of his shows in the past few years...both here at Homewood Studios and elsewhere. But something unexpected happened with this show, something magical and quite pleasant. Everyone loved this show.

In the middle winter, a series of photographs taken over a seven day stretch the previous winter, photographs of cold and ice and snow taken not more than a few blocks from his home in Bryn Mawr, caught everyone's imagination.

Viewers were attracted to subtle hints of color, to images that could be maps of Earth taken from satellites but were in fact shots of air bubbles trapped in ice three feet from the camera lens. Others responded to the subtle humor of Mader's viewpoint or his talent at capturing just the right moment of a seemingly inconsequential motion.

In short, a show full of surprises... but why should we be surprised? It was a Jack Mader show!
