Merrilee Luke-Ebbeler’s Firm But Kind exhibition of photographs pulls the viewer into a moment in time that is often focused on family and the events that bring them together. Birthday parties, weddings and parades serve as opportunities to capture intimate moments and multilayered narratives that are less about broad political statements and more about the dignity of relationships between individuals.

 Firm But Kind is a selection of images that demonstrates Ms. Luke-Ebbeler’s eye as a scavenger of visual stories. In the tradition of capturing the decisive moment, the Art Academy of Cincinnati-trained photographer is always searching for the microsecond that elevates the ordinary into something extraordinary. Taking photographs in a stream-of-consciousness way, Ms. Luke-Ebbeler continuously looks for compelling compositions within the frame of her lens as she aspires to create a narrative with open-ended imagery. Firm But Kind showcases 24 large-scale, black-and-white digital photographs at gallery One One in Brazee Street Studios.
