Tom and Marj Green’s photography exhibition includes this image of Dubrovnik, Croatia.

“Images in Black & White,” a photography exhibition by Los Altos Hills residents Tom and Marj Green, is on display 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays through Dec. 19 at Woodside Priory School, 302 Portola Road, Portola Valley.

A reception for the artists is slated 6-9 p.m. Friday at the school. Wine and refreshments will be served.

The exhibition features the Greens’ new photos from the Balkans and Rome.

The Greens are fine-art black-and-white photographers. Their photographs reflect urban, industrial and rural works of man. They find beauty and design in common objects and capture how they work with light and shadow to evoke a mood or story. Their images show attention to detail, tonality and composition to create a unique style. They said they aim to document scenes that others might walk by – seeing the “extraordinary in the ordinary.”
