Ted Fines is the visiting artist for June at Dragonfly Art Gallery. A reception will be held for him from 1 to 3 p.m. Saturday at the gallery, 116 E. Main St. in Harrisville.

Fines is an experienced professional photography who has been mentored by many of today’s great midwestern photographers. He has been featured in several books: “Coney Detroit” by Katherine Young and Joe Grimm, Spring 2012; “Detroit ­– Through Our Eyes” Fall 2009; and “Boneyards — Detroit Under Ground” by Richard Bak, Summer 2010. He was an original member of EXPOSURE.DETROIT and founding member of The Detroit League of Photographers.

Born in Toronto, Ontario, Fines now lives in Lincoln (Lost Lake Woods Club) with his wife Chris.

“I have always been fascinated by photography,” he said in a press release. “From my simple beginnings using my mother’s Kodak ‘Brownie’ camera to today’s advanced digital cameras, there are basic rules to becoming an ‘accomplished’ photographer.”

Fines will be an instructor during the Alcona Arts Retreat Sept. 6 through 8 (www.inspirationalcona.org). His work is on display at Forty-Five North Art Gallery in Alpena (www.45northartgallery.com).

He serves as executive director of Habitat for Humanity Northeast Michigan.
