Review in Naples Florida Weekly Through the Lens by Nancy Stetson. May 31, 2018

“Celebrating Life,” another striking image, this one by Seattle photographer Constance Brinkley, is a black-and-white photo of an older couple exuberantly dancing. She has caught the duo in “a decisive moment,” says Mr. O’Brien, (von Liebig curator Jack O'Brien)  quoting the photographer Henri Cartier Bresson: “Your eye must see a composition or an expression that life itself offers you, and you must know with intuition when to click the camera. That is a moment the photographer is creative. Oop! The moment! Once you miss it, it is gone forever.”

Ms. Brinkley has done this in capturing “that exact moment,” he says. “In a second, one of them may have turned away. She captures that very decisive moment.”
