For over four decades Paul Dahlquist has taken and exhibited exquisite photographs that glow with the artist\'s passions for life. The photographer clearly adores his subject, and he shares that intimate moment with exuberance, as if to shout, "Look what I found!" Each image is Paul\'s irrepressible gift to the rest of us. Almendra Sandoval photographs nature with a fantastical twist. Her human subjects appear to embrace the living scenery and adopt the spirits of the trees, stones, or glacial pools they inhabit. Together, Almendra and Paul present visions of human beauty as mundane or theatrical, domestic or passionate or ancient, and always magical. For our February 2014 exhibition, Blindfold Gallery selected a dozen signed prints from each artist to celebrate their mutual admiration and their artistic collaborations in black and white film photography. We present them as practical magic, an antidote to winter and a Valentine to our viewers.
