The human mind tends to establish routines when processing familiar information, as such people will often miss out on beautiful sights in well known locations. A new photo exhibit in Sudbury, Massachusetts, seeks to challenge this habit by capturing images of beautiful sights in mundane settings.

Entitled Interpretations, the exhibit is a collection of 17 mid-size color prints from local photographer Roy Hughes, in which the former Polaroid executive attempts to find something new in things people may see every day.

The 62-year old photog has garnered acclaim for approaching ordinary items from a designer''s perspective, using a painter''s palette of colors and a dramatist''s sense of lighting.

"I think of photography as a series of different things," Hughes tells the Taunton Gazette. "I finally realized what I like is strong, bold photography. I like taking landscapes. I like taking portraits. But what I really like is taking abstractions."

Hughes, a graduate of the design program at the State University of New York on Long Island, is a 30-year photography veteran, though he only recently moved away from commercial works to focus on more personal projects.
