Lee Backer’s latest project exploring nature will soon be on display in New York City. The New Jersey native has been photographing for over 40 years, now fully committed to his craft after retiring from working in Information Technology. 

These images, taken in Death Valley and the White Mountains of California, explore the varied rhythms created by light and shadow. I found these rhythms in both landscapes and close-ups: the textures and undulating forms of sand dunes, the stripes woven into the clay hills, mosaic patterns in rock walls, and ripples of grain in ancient Bristlecone Pines. The photographs are printed in black and white to emphasize the shapes, patterns, and textures.

Opening Reception is March 4th, from 6-8pm. The exhibition will run from March 5th-March 29th.

A new exhibition at the Red Filter Gallery includes work by 17 artists from the well known artists’ co-operative: Soho Photo Gallery in New York.

The Soho Photo Gallery was established in 1971 by a group of New York Times photographers striving to break away from the commercial art gallery experience and offer something new. It is now the only non-profit cooperative photography gallery in New York City. The gallery is run entirely by members – over one hundred of them who direct, operate, and financially support the gallery. Well-known photographers have shared in exhibiting at the Soho Photo Gallery as well, including Ansel Adams, Andre Kertesz, Jill Enfield, Jill Freedman, and Joel Sternfeld. Regularly featured in local newspapers, trade and national publications, their website, http://www.sohophoto.com, offers regular updates with announcements of new exhibitions and other exciting gallery events.

Exhibit will run: January 26 –February 26

At the same time that A Monochrome Winter exhibits, the Red Filter Gallery offers an extended viewing of Kisa Kavass’ Moments de Curiosité, and John Andrulis’ Retrospective in Upstairs Gallery II.
