A new exhibit opens today at Red Filter Fine Art Photography Gallery …

“Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow” breaks the Red Filter Gallery’s tradition of black and white photography by also including some select contemporary color work by Brian Lav alongside his brilliant monochrome work. Gallery owner, Forrest Old states, “Brian’s work, then and now, encompasses a broad evolution of style with substance. His new ventures into color work are exciting and worth experiencing by a broad audience”.
“Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow” explores the everyday life of New Jersey resident and photographer, Brian Lav. While everything from Jersey Shore sights to garage windows, old sofas and train stations are examined with a soulful eye, they are given new meaning through careful composition of angles, lines, forms and light. Lav transforms the ordinary into images of nuanced emotion with his control and attention to detail. Craft meets art, leaving a visual history of creative artifacts.
Brian Lav teaches photography at Parsons the New School for Design; an institution he has taught at since 1974. He has been photographing and teaching since 1969, and earned Parsons’ Distinguished Teaching Award in 1988. He has had over forty one man and group exhibits of his work and is represented in many permanent collections including The International Center for Photography, The Rochester Institute of Technology, The New Jersey State Museum, The Newark Museum, and The Museum of Art and History in Fribourg, Switzerland. Brian Lav is recognized as a prominent contemporary photographer, a master printer, and an exceptional educator.

Now through November 4
