County barns are inspired by his interest
in their historical qualities. “The older
ones are made of wood and stone and
have a lot of pretty lines as opposed
to newer ones made of steel and brick.”
Campoli first exhibited his work

for the show, last year winning a Best
in Show award for his work in the
Churchville Nature Center 26th Annual

Photography Club.
One of Campoli’s challenges, as
a photographer, is to shoot less and
“compose more in my mind,” he said.
“You have to go beyond. It’s not what
you look at, its what you see,” he added,
quoting Henry David Thoreau to
illustrate his point.

than trying to force the restaurant to be
something it wasn’t, I had to learn to let
it be its own living force, and let it grow
where it was going to go.”
“I started off with plans to have live,

and dancing!’ So, I adjusted and hoped it
