Palmyra Community Library, 402 E. Main St., is exhibiting “Through My Eyes,” a photography display by Terry Mulee, through June 30 during regular library hours in the third-floor art gallery.
Mulee, a lifelong resident of Rochester’s 19th Ward, is legally blind. She started with a Kodak 104 Instamatic camera, but has embraced zoom lenses and digital photography in her recent work.
“I became interested in photography at a very young age and had the good fortune to be mentored by Doris Carhart,” Mulee said. “My camera allows me to capture images that I may not fully see as I click the shutter button. At the computer screen, I can see what my naked eye missed. There are always pleasant surprises as I view my photos.”
Mulee frequently travels throughout the Finger Lakes region and the U.S. She documents her journeys with her camera. “Through My Eyes” includes photographs of scenery and sculptures from her recent trips to Alaska, Washington state, Acadia National Park in Maine and Adirondack Park. An avid gardener, Mulee’s subjects include flowers, shrubs and birds.
“Through My Eyes” is her first show at the Palmyra Community Library. She previously had solo exhibitions at St. John’s Home and My Sister’s Gallery at Episcopal Church Home in Rochester and Books Etc. in Macedon. She regularly presents travelogues featuring her photographs and is an active volunteer for the New York Library Association.
