Gallery Opening: Peju Simoyan
Join us for the opening of Around the World, an exhibit featuring the photography of Olapeju Simoyan!
Olapeju was exposed to photography at an early age, growing up in a diplomatic family with parents who actively documented family experiences with photography as they travelled across continents. Despite this early exposure, she didn’t actually own a camera till she was over the age of 30! Since getting her own camera, Ola developed an interest in nature photography and had her photograph titled “He leadeth my beside the still waters” published in Voyages Through Time by the International Library of Photography. Since then, several of her photographs have been published in literary journals.
