Margus Tammemägi's debut exhibition "The Light in Silence" was opened at the observatory
On Tuesday, February 4, Margus Tammemägi's debut exhibition was opened at the main building of Tartu Observatory. The photo exhibition is called "The Light in Silence".
Tammemägi is a musician and a teacher. He also worked in theatre for a long time. "My profession is also my hobby, so the border of work and hobby is pretty thin for me," Tammemägi said. Among other things, Tammemägi is an active hobby astronomer.
Tammemägi believes that one of his hobbies – riding motorcycles – has led him to another one, photography. Nature and bird observations came to him naturally, when he was wandering around Estonian nature.
Most of the photos of "The Light in Silence" have been captured at Laeva bog. There are also photos taken at Jänese hiking trail, which runs by the shore of Emajõgi. "I enjoy our ancient nature with enormous power and energy very much," Tammemägi said.
The exhibition assembles visual thoughts and visions that Tammemägi has wished to share with the audience through the camera lens.
The exhibition will be at the observatory until April.
