The city of Enumclaw’s Gallery 2015 will be displaying the work of photographer Michael Diegel through March 3.

The show, entitled “Focal Point,” is a joint offering of the city and 4Culture of King County.

Diegel’s interest in photography started with a 35mm Pentax film camera. A conversion to a digital Nikon camera was made in 2004.

Following a career in science, Diegel received formal training at the Rocky Mountain School of Photography in Missoula, Mont.  Photography interests were and are used as a vehicle for documenting travels to foreign and domestic locations.  Photographic interests include portraiture, documentary, landscapes and cityscapes.

His Enumclaw exhibit represents scenes from the Northwest, a recent driving trip of the United States and a tour of Utah and Arizona.

“My photography is an effort to emphasize colors, light versus dark, and form,” Diegel wrote. “An  attempt to accomplish these efforts is done with focus points and lines of alignment which draw the viewer’s eye toward the main focal point of the image.  However, my hope is to allow the viewer’s eye to wander and explore the entire image after the primary point of interest has been brought forward.

“I am also drawn to people with interesting faces or people in interesting situations. I find it important to discover them with my photography but more importantly to explore who they are and where they are in life’s journey.”

Gallery 2015 is in the council chambers at Enumclaw City Hall, 1339 Griffin Ave. Hours for the exhibition space are 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.
